Pen engrave pls

Hello glowforge family I need some ideas about how to engrave on a pen using glowforge and which type I need to use, please. TIA

Can you be specific on what you mean here? You will be able to engrave on any material that the :glowforge: can cut - most woods, metal if you use an add-on like ceremark, etc.

As far as how, creating a jig is probably your best bet:

Almost any pen made of wood will engrave nicely. So will anodized aluminum pens. Stainless steel pens can be marked using something like CerMark.

If you do any engraving on pens I recommend you remove all the plastic pieces from inside them. If not they may all melt together.

Great, I will love to try this. where did you buy this? can you pls send me the link?

I don’t know what you’re asking - I linked to a jig that was made by another :glowforge: user - the instructions on how they made it are in the post…
