'bunch'a whiners. Everything burned gives off various amounts of toxic vapors. Just put it under a vent hood. :D

I hear they can still do metal if you put a special coating on the piece. (think "sharpie and balloon")

well, we have a fume extractor but there are still things not to engrave.
also you are thinking of laser marking. the coating when hit with a laser reacts and combines with the metal, leaving a permanent mark (no actual cutting/engraving).

You can't engrave things such as PVC, because PVC emits a nasty chlorine gas when its burnt.

The Engraver costs about $20,000.

Re: Universal Laser VLS 3.60
 
lol you could call it a potmod but i call it scary, too much fire...
EDIT: proto is correct that we paid $20,000 but he didn't say that we got a good deal on this, these setups can be well over $30,000

Tesla I was thinking of making little plastic slugs with green laser modules in them. Perhaps we could work together and make a few of them to sell.
