If you’re using a diode laser then it won’t be capable of etching glass, you’ll need CO2 laser for that. Another option that works very well for etching metal and glass is a diamond drag engraver. I’ve has one for a couple of years and don’t remember where I got it but there’s a pretty good deal on ebay. Only thing with these is they’re strictly for engraving lines and can’t do variable depth like you can with V-carving or milling but they’re very forgiving of Z-height changes in the material too.
