Glowforge Tips and Tricks

Here you'll find a whole host of tips, tricks tutorials, and more:
* Only regulars to the forum bulletin board can post here - the system will grant posting privileges automatically. Anyone can reply, though.
* Tips and tricks can also be posted in "Everything Else". Helpful regulars will move the best tips and tricks into this category.
* Every post should be a self-contained tutorial, tip, trick, link, instructional video, etc.
* One topic per post.
* Please edit each others' posts. Posts are wikis by default so we can keep them current and tidy.
* If you'd like to discuss this category, please do so in the "Everything Else" category.
* It's OK to have multiple posts on the same topic if you have a different approach. For example, there can be more than one video on how to peel masking from material.
* Please do not post anything that advises the user to perform an action prohibited by the user manual.
