One year ago today was the day! I got my Glowforge. I figured I’d make a compilation of some of the things I made with it! Fun Fact, almost all the pictures I’ve taken over the last year have been of either my baby or a Glowforge Project.
Stormageddon Arrives! Box was dinged up, but it was in one piece! Fun fact, the first iteration of the packaging did not have any plastic handles.
Look who got to press the button first!
Hello World! (Should have used white bread)
The infamous ruler!
Escutcheon, because everyone else was making one.
Fractals and magnets and comics, Oh My!
Paper and Narwhals
Practicing with slate
My friend hand drew these. I lasered them for her.
Fun with Graphene!
3d Engraving tests!
IT’S D&D! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4BuL886bJA) (Sorry, not Glowforge related, but I love that new video for D&D Beyond.)
A D&D Initiative tracker prototype.
Even more Gifts (with my test cuts)!
Cork Fabric Wallet that I never quite finished. (I broke the needle trying to sew through superglue.)
IT’S D&D… maps cut from chipboard.
X-Wing and Tie Fighters
Edge Lit Acrylic Tests! (Color filling with crayons worked out very well!)
Valentines Day Magnets for School! and a tiny narwhal
Acrylic Birthday Sign!
IT’S D&D dice box.
Things I’ve learned. I really need to take more pictures of my projects. Some of them I forgot to take pictures of. I should make duplicates of some of my gifts. There are a few that I wish I had a copy of now.
Overall, I’ve loved using my Glowforge. It’s kind of amazing the amount of changes that have happened over the past year since I’ve received it! Thank you @dan, @tony, @Rita, @bailey, and the rest of @GlowforgeStaff for a wonderful product!
I haven’t finished my 1 year project/experiment yet. Good news, I have all the parts now and tested it out. Bad news, I needed a bigger transformer. I have it now, which means more testing (if it’s not wet outside).
