You can find glass objects in various shapes around our homes. You can have a bottle of wine and a glass from your wedding, an elegant vase, or a custom candy bowl. Often, the value of these objects lies not in their beauty, but in the memories, we have of them.
Why do these items have such simple exteriors and fond memories? How can you turn ordinary glass objects into objects of beauty? 2d/3d subsurface laser engraving is one answer.

When you laser engraves glass, it creates a frozen look. This occurs when a focused laser beam hits the glass surface and causes minor damage. The result is similar to sandblasting or chemical etching. Where laser engraving shines is accuracy and repeatability.
Think about a few glasses of your favorite wine. They are curvy and elegant. Why use the ugly square jar when you can have something sleek and elegant? When creating designs for glasses and other circular objects, there are several considerations to consider, including surface alignment, element size, and texture.
If the object was curved from top to bottom like a champagne flute, it would require a different design than a wine bottle with a large flat surface great for laser engraving. The focus is on questions.
Many lasers can engrave both round and curved glass, but they have limited capacities. The focus is where most lasers have a problem with curved surfaces.
The wine bottle laser can concentrate on the bottle body and stay focused during engraving. With a curved lens, the laser will not focus when the surface of an object approaches or moves away from the laser.
