(Alpha Tech) X2 good idea.
Also, flat table (foam will help) water, water, water; listen to the blade-- making too much noise? Dress it.
We find that different colors will have different characteristics and fabrication approaches.
Where other gauged thin panels and sintered slabs can be quite challenging to fab and install, the manufacturer of GEOLUXE touts that they are a "molten" product where the others use pressures and heat to recrystallize the minerals, GEOLUXE should act differently/easier.
I cannot speak to the validity of that quite yet since we have not cut many GEOLUXE slabs.

GEOLUXE is a different animal than UC.
Does it cut more like glass than stone?
More brittle, less flexible (forgiving)?
I am not sure how "molten" does not use heat to recrystalize minerals. In fact, it could be argued that molten could be the highest heat achievable.
Soon, even the smallest shops will have to have waterjet technology, or so it seems with all of these newer materials.
A 5-axis water jet and no edge work would be nice. All miters, i assume.
