Scoring glass with laser vs hand tool - for stained glass

WARNING: DO NOT apply vector art to glass. you can explode glass by hitting it with vector art.

these trials were done with the smallest amount of heat to see just how badly glass reacts to laser vector art. these pictures should help convince you of just how bad it is even at the lowest levels.

trials performed by another member, LH, who had the laser cutter well under her belt and ventured into stained glass.

top pic is of laser etched, then broken along the etched line.

next pic is manually etched, then broken along the etched line.

last one is manually scored but not yet broken.

fyi, the Epilog Laser site recommends etching glass to score it for stained glass work.
