Sorry, I know the title is unhelpful. I am a new Glowforge owner, and I wanted to know if I could use the laser to engrave my name onto already-manufactured products that had multiple layers of different material. There are a bunch of different stuff I want to label. But, two main ones:
I have a few beauty tools that have a metal casing with mechanisms underneath. As long as the metal is laser-safe, how do I ensure it doesn’t damage the wiring and mechanics underneath?
Also, I have some tools that are layered with silicone then metal and wiring. Would that be safe to engrave?
I am not sure the depth of the top layer of material, so I wasn’t sure if that made a difference.
If it’s possible to do so, please let me know any tips or tricks in making it work!
If anyone has any insight, that would be great. If the answer is obvious and simple, my apologies. I literally just got it and haven’t been able to verse myself.
