This is a simple project I did at the TechShop (http://techshop.ws
). I had a set of old glass drinking cups just sitting in the cuboard collecting dust, so I decided to spruce them up a little by laser enscribing sayings and/or images on them. For designing the glasses, I used Adobe Illustrater and CorelDRAW. You will need access to a laser (I used an Epilog 45W Helix laser) and a laser Rotary attachment (assuming your glasses are round).
You will need:
-ruler (or measuring tape)
-scrap of paper (for focusing the laser)
-laser rotary attachement
-scrap of cloth (for wiping off the glasses)
-old socks (for transporting the glasses safely)
