Engraving up to 1355 DPI. Introducing Glowforge - The 3D Laser Printer. Update- it keeps getting better- The perfect laser for my home business.
I have been read watching and saving a while now for a laser cutter and engraver. After seeking advise from others landed on a glowforge.It arrived quickly and literally was set up and PRINTING my first project in under 30 minutes. Its heavy- you will need someone to help you lift it to set it up. I vent mine outside my window- also super easy and co es with everything you need to get started. Being stuck at home right now I cant tell you how much fun my family and I are having with the machine. We are now making hooks for medical staff to help with pain from wearing elastic face masks. I have also already launched my custom sign business and will have this machine paid off within 2 months! The software is so user friendly! Love love love my new Glowforge! I have now since paid off my machine plus have built a solid business for myself. 5.0 out of 5 stars. Outstanding Laser Cutter for Woodworking, Leatherworking, Cosplay, etc. Reviewed in the United States on September. The 30,000 ft view in this review is: Glowforge is amazing. If youre into making things and youre on the fence about getting one, just do it. I have the basic model. I like the extra power of the basic. Some folks who use the Glowforge for cutting/engraving large signs DO think the slot is worth the extra though! I own a 3D printer, and a workshop full of woodworking tools.
I bought the Glowforge as a cherry on top accessory for my woodworking, thinking Id use it to engrave various wood parts when working on furniture. But Ive wound up using it for far more than just that. In the end, nothing beats the precision and versatility of the Glowforge. I have used it to cut and engrave wood.To cut and engrave Plexiglass!!! This is amazing on the Glowforge! Ive developed a whole system for cutting dungeon tiles for D&D on the Glowforge. Ive engraved several wood projects.
Ive cut plexiglass with it. Ive done leatherworking on it. Heres some examples of my work. Product iteration is incredibly fast and fun. Reviewed in the United States on August 9, 2021.
Today I decided to build a Raspberry Pi ad-blocker for my home wifi network. Building the Pi was easy, modelling the Pi and Router in Fusion360 was a little more of a challenge. With the GlowForge I was able to test out sizes, tolerances and clearances using cardstock before moving on to the final materials. The GlowForge makes the minor mistakes I made in measurements a worry-free process because of the flexibility Im afforded by being able to use things like cardstock to test with.The operations compared to 3d printing and milling are far quicker to iterate and for that, this piece of equipment took no time at all to build. I can't fully express my satisfaction with this product. Do I need additional software to print with a Glowforge?
