Has anyone engraved copper coated stainless steel? Does it engrave the same as regular stainless steel, cermark and the same settings as stainless steel?

It shouldn't... SS engraves because of the carbon in the steel. the copper coating prevents access to it.

My bad, I thought you were trying to engrave directly. Assuming the same thickness of SS and copper-coated SS, they should engrave the same with Cermark. The copper coating is too think to make any difference in heat dissipation.
