Yeti tumbler

Has anyone ever successfully engraved a yeti tumbler? If so, what settings did you use?

Not without cutting the bottom out of the machine. (Too large.)

There are no 2" yetis yet, so nope.

Thanks for the sarcastic answers. Wasn’t sure if it was possible to do it with the crumb tray out.

@Jules wasn’t being sarcastic, people have done this!

Yes, they have. (Didn’t say it was the best use of this investment, but there you have it.)

No.

I think you’ll find that people are way nicer here than most other forums, sarcasm isn’t generally the tone that we strike. Your response was the most sarcastic part! :slight_smile: I don’t blame you, most forums like this are filled with jerks.

Anyway, chopping out the base is definitely doable but what I’d call an extreme modification.

Here it is.

Chop away if you’re brave.

The few times that I have asked for help, I have gotten a great response. Reading responses can sometimes get misconstrued.

You can also buy laser safe masking for sand blasting. Then you get to buy a sand blaster.

You could probably do the same for chemical etching, but then you just get rubber gloves and chemicals and no sand blaster :frowning:

Or cut the tumbler in half :wink:

:rofl:

Maximum with the tray out is specified to be 2" - that’s why someone cut the bottom out… :grimacing:

Or you can cut yourself a stencil and air brush the tumbler.

Aren’t they generally stainless steel? I was under the impression stainless was difficult to paint. Far from a paint expert.

I have a small air compressor and a simple air brush is on the list. But it is a long list. :unamused:

I have some glass etching materials. I may try that and see if it works. :thinking:

Just make sure the resists are laser safe. Many are meant to be cut on drag cutters and are made from a chlorine containing vinyl.

My wife and I did 3 Yeti tumblers (knock-offs actually) the day before yesterday. It’s the thing we take the bottom of our Glowforge out for most often! We’ve given away about 40 of them at this point.
