Of course, you'll need glasses.

I think more about pluging laser to extruder case, then to control it same like my prints.

Thought, someone tryed it.

Didn't try it yet. But I have a 405nm 500mW laser:

Which I want to stick on it just to test to see what's possible, however, I do not have a proper lens yet.

This should do engraving, but of you want to cut anything else then paper you need a 20W gas laser, which is much more expensive and fragile.

In case of price, I'll let some watercut in my city.

But I'll consider engraving with some blue-ray laser or sth, that price level.
