random thought for injection-molded caps. there are masterbatch additives that are irreversible thermochromic. dark for white, white for black mixes. used for laser-scribing in mass production, i had a brush with doing the scribing for apple. maaaaybeeee the material works also for low-power co2 laser, or for the few-watt blue diode ones, common in low-cost laser scribers/cutters.

Ferdinand Vogeler12:39 PM
Nice!

Steve M Potter12:39 PM
