Laser engraving is a form of pyrography, or "wood burning" - with greater precision and flexibility in materials that can be engraved.

Laser engravers work by using a high-intensity light beam to "burn" the material, producing designs on the material by burning or reacting with the material.

Laser engravers utilize various software to "translate" the desired design into machine code, which is then sent to the machine.
