The laser cutter cuts through the material along the red lines. Organic and inflammable materials may get burned edges.

The laser cutter marks the material along the blue lines. Marking also can be described as cutting at a lower power-setting.

The laser cutter engraves the entire black / gray area. The engraving processes works line by line, similar to an inkjet printer. This mode also allows to process pictures (.JPEG) on your parts.
