What advice do you have for laser engraving plastic?

Engraving from the bottom up can help reduce residue buildup. Some colors show more residue than others, especially white. Running a second pass at a faster speed and half the power helps eliminate that. Cleaning with lighter fluid and a microfiber rag helps clean up any remaining residue that may be left.
