You can definitely use it to engrave. The puzzle lesson in this class is essentially engraving. Carving is tricky since it's difficult to get consistent depth burnt into a material surface, but this is also essentially what's happening in the puzzle lesson- using the raster engraving setting, the machine changes the power of the laser based on the value of the image- black is 100% power, white is 0% power. With any raster image, you end up with a shallow relief carving effect.
