The Laser Tool fires a laser into the simulation in the direction of the cursor. If the laser intersects with an object with a simulated surface, the laser will impart energy into the object, heating its surface. The rate at which this energy will be transferred depends on the laser's power and radius.

A real laser works by adding energy to a gain medium, such as a crystal or gas. This energy, at a specific wavelength, drives stimulated emission in the medium and produces a narrow beam of light.
