Just like many of you I am excited to have reached that golden moment: Glowforge ready to ship!
But I have a little question: during the shipping verification process we were shown this cool page of features, tips and tricks. I read through it and said to myself “this is cool, I think that I will come back and show my wife this page later.”
But it is not to be. The page was apparently part of the shipping verification process and is now lost to time. Is there any way to get back to this page after you complete the shipping process? Here is the web address:
I love that page, and I am going to spend quite some time with it once I get my Glowforge, but unfortunately that is not the page I am looking for. The page I am speaking of was laid out a little like this:
Glowforge target feature, with checkmark if it has been achieved already.
Previously referred to feature, actual level of achievement, sometimes much greater than planned.
Bonus tip, interesting little tip.
If you have recently gone through the shipping process you might recall it.
It would be great for that to be accessible to everyone at any time. Meanwhile, perhaps we can crowdsource it. Hopefully some people will see this topic who haven’t yet gotten their golden e-mail, and they will remember to take screenshots and share them with us.
So since then my 'forge was replaced and I got the new black tray. There have been many times that I find I miss the original. The black, while very pretty, often makes it more difficult for me to see the objects on top of it. Hard to explain. But somehow there’s just no contrast anymore. Like the black sucks the light from everything. I used to be able to see the honeycomb and make certain decisions based on that. But with the black it almost looks like a solid flat surface in the GFUI. Not really complaining about it. It is what it is.
Thanks so much community, that’s the page! It’s just a great “feel good” features and tips page. Great for someone who knows about Glowforge (“Oh yeah, how’s that laser coming along? Didn’t you back it on Kickstarter a while ago?”) but isn’t “plugged in.”
Just be glad Glowforge wasn’t acquired by Apple, then we’d have to deal with a limited-edition $10,000 gleaming white ceramic crumb tray. And the machine would only have one button… hey, wait a minute!
