Computerised engraving machines utilise different cutting tools, both rotating and non-rotating, to physically scribe, burnish or cut the chosen material to create a permanent mark. It is possible to create both 2D and 3D designs using computerised engraving machines.
The two most common cutters used with these machines are D-bit cutters, which are sharpened like a V and are spun during the engraving process in order to cut and engrave the material, and the other is a diamond tipped cutter, which is dragged along the surface of the material creating a scribe that is commonly used on different metals.
