It does not fit in any other electronic cutter.
It can be used to engrave and etch plastics, acrylics, metal clay, and can also etch/engrave on flat metal (copper, bronze, silver, aluminum [but not hard metals such as steel/stainless steel]) as long as the metal can fit under the machines rollers. It may also etch on glass and some papers.
Test before investing in expensive media.
