I was wondering if any of the current holders of a Glowforge would be willing/able to give us a 360° view of the GF with an overlay of the dimensions. I’m looking for more than just what’s seen here.
I’d like to see the back of the machine for once. I would like to know the distance from the (edge/bottom/top) of the machine to the exhaust port so that I can build a custom stand/shelf for it.
I chose the GF Pro + Air filter and would like to know if the air filter can simply set into a recessed box frame (as to hide it) or does it need breathing room? As for the pass-through slots (I haven’t heard of any Pro models in the wild yet) do they hinge and hang all the way down @Dan, or do they lower to say a 90° angle and stand straight out?
Those are just a couple questions I had. Thanks in advance.
Unless I am totally confused, and/or I misunderstand your intentions, the filter is going to be directly under the Glowforge. The connection between the exhaust and the filter is going to go through the bottom going to be an elbow bend out the back to filter for the air flow.
I’ll snap some pics with dimensions though for you.
@marmak3261 thank you. I figured that the filter would be attached at the bottom but I wasn’t sure if the hose would bend down from the back of it to the filter or if it just ran straight down and the exhaust port in the back would be blocked off. There really isn’t anything I’ve found about the filter/exhaust.
I’d imagine the filter would need some form of air flow out of it if for no other reason than air pressure in the GF. I’d just like to know more about the filter functions. @Dan do you have any more info somewhere that I haven’t seen?
Can’t find the quote, but I’m pretty sure that’s what Dan said at one point. I haven’t lifted my unit high enough to look under it (it’s too heavy for casual inspections ), but didn’t see an obvious port out the the bottom…
The filter unit will no doubt need it’s own ‘breathing room.’
The two horizontal slots are both air intakes and must have at least 1 inch of clearance. Pure speculation in my part, but I’m betting on a custom U-shaped adapter with the filter (I ordered Basic+Filter, btw).
Sorry. Maybe im misreading. To clarify what I’m saying the glowforge will sit on top of the filter, but the connection between the two will be through a Ushaped vent tube coming out of the exhaust port into the filter.
Looking at the bottom of my glowforge, there’s no other place for them to transmit data or airflow for the most part. There’s an air intake under the button. There’s also a speaker there that might be used, but I doubt that.
