Wow guys, nice work ! Could you tell the rest of us the exact process ? You paint the glass with something, then laser it, clean it and done ?
Thanks, keep it up.

That's the quick overview. I have tried about 10 times with varying degrees of success. Critical parameters:

   1. Paint type - tried 5, 3 did nothing.
   2. Paint thickness - too thin just evaporates the paint, too thick doesn't heat the glass.

6 attempts have just removed paint. Did not touch the glass. 2 were so so, 2 came out pretty good.

Starting a more rigorous evaluation procedure using "standard" test patterns on flat glass. Also switching from 1.6W to 2.4E laser.

Black primer did nothing for me. Perhaps applied too thin or too thick.

Might be that the 1.6w laser does not heat up the glass fast enough before the paint gets blasted away. Try your 2.5w and see if it different

I belong to a club that has a show in 2 weeks and I was planning on running both the core-xy and the glass etcher. Half afraid to swap lasers today and mess everything up but swapping lasers is definitely part of the test plan. Got some different flat black primer tonight and will try again.

You are also the root cause of much of my compulsive obsessive socially deviant laser etching behavior.
