A thought - I don't know what model laser machine you have, but the ones 
I've seen do both engraving and cutting. Could you engrave the 
"infinity" part and cut out the "f-cross" part? That would keep the 
aspect ratio intact.

Another technique I've seen done involves creating slits for shading - 
the distance between the slits can be less than the thickness of the 
material, since the slits are so narrow, especially if the material is 
as strong as stainless steel is.
