Received my Glowforge Pro yesterday. The week preceding its arrival, I was working on a design I wanted to try. This has a massive amount of detail and I wanted to see if it was even possible to make it at a scale of 3" square.
On my CNC machine, I’d have to size it at 24" x 24" in order to preserve the detail.
All told, I’m happy. The detail in the flames collapsed, but I can clearly see the symbols for Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mars. To have anything recognizable is impressive.
Second effort this morning. Now 6" square. Instead of Proofgrade Draftboard, it’s locally sourced 1/8" Baltic Birch I wish I could say it was fully weeded when I took the picture, but not. Weeding is a challenge.
