What metals for sure will the Glowforge be able to engrave?


#1

I saw on your video, you were engraving a design on a mac book, that’s some kind of aluminum (correct me if I’m wrong), I was wondering what other metals will the GF able to engrave.

Dan it also would be nice to have a full list of materials GF is able to work with.

Thanks

Dan has answered this in another thread.

Also @ferlg51 check out the tech specs for what materials GF can work with.

Do you know if GF has been doing testing using dry moly instead of Cermark?


#5

Someone (not GF) here posted a comparison between the two, and there were a few differences in depth of coloration and power settings, but for the money - moly would get my vote…

We haven’t done more than perfunctory testing with spray on pretreatments like Cermark yet.
