Cutting and engraving metal

I am very new to the wonderful thing known as the Glowforge! I have seen you can engrave on metal,but I have not seen if you can cut out letters ect… on metal! if so what kind of metal (sheet? corrugated, galvanized ,iron, steel? and thickness)

You can’t cut or engrave metal with the glrowforge due to power and spectrum limitations. You can add material to metals like cermark that will leave a durable imprint of your pattern fused to the surface or you can etch away coatings like paint and anodization to make patterns on metal as well. There are options out there for acrylic that has a metal appearance but when it comes to actual metal you are out of luck.
