I had noticed your Instructable on one of the staff picks emails. It was interesting to see how two different designs converged to similar solutions given the same resources. Good Instructable!

Thanks for the correction. I misread that when I looked up the materials that could be cut with CO2 laser cutters.
Yeah, that would be another material that you could use for a cool effect. I believe most laser cutters can cut aluminum, so that should definitely be possible.Another possibility that I've actually seen is purchasing blank aluminum ID tags, and using a small CNC machine (I believe specifically an Othermill) to engrave your name onto the tag.

Hi ZacharyB64,That's a very interesting Instructable, however I have never seen it before. And even though both projects use a laser cutter and CAD to design, they don't seem to have many similarities beyond that. That Instructable is for making buttons with symbols on them, and mine is for making a name tag using periodic table elements.Also it looks like some of the symbols in that Instructable are custom made; everything that I use in mine is simply Arial font text. If my Instructable had been based off of or inspired by any others, I definitely would have cited them.
