Etched like with a laser, or engraved like physically removing material to show the metal underneath? You need a real powerful (think co2, 40+w) laser and some CerMark to sinter off the top layer of PC (anodized works as well) but it does work.

Etched like with an engraving bit or endmill is likely a lot easier, but feasibility comes down to what part you're working with and what your desired results are.

I'm thinking hand etched... I'll talk to a local engraver once the part is pc'd and see what they say.

I wonder will it splinter or crack around the engraved part?

Depends on the part and how deep you're engraving. This was .15mm and I doubt it affected the part structurally.

I was envisioning like acid etch.. like they do glass.. or like acrylic where you use a light media blast to etch the open sections of a decal
