Has anyone tried doing this?


I had someone ask if i could engrave a logo on high carbide stainless steel. I know the glowforge doesn’t do that, but what if i used this product to print it on there?


Is this something that would be feasible?


Searching even a little for “cermark” yields a ton of info and discussion.


Budget a little time, as it’s a pretty deep rabbit hole. Maybe get a nice cup of coffee first. :slight_smile:


Yes, used it for quite a few projects. Don’t get scared off, it is incredibly simple. Get the spray, spray it on, test some mid-low power settings, and you’ll have it working in no time! Rinses right off in water.


FYI: There was a very long discussion about whether an acidic solution like vinegar and water on a thin paper towel as a mask works. Have no idea what does and doesn’t work but during that time I tried it with a razor blade. Worked extremely well on the blade and less on other stainless materials. If I’m not mistaken razor blades are high carbon stainless.


Some new life in this thread talks about that:
