So I’ve had my Glowforge and air filter for about a month and a half. I’m very frustrated that after such a short time the filter seems to need replacing already. I failed to realize that the supplied draft board that is sent with the new unit was not good to use with the filter. So that’s my bad.
I’m hoping that this is the reason it is already filled. Is it typical that the filter has to be replaced every other month or should they typically last longer? I’m starting to think that throwing down $1000 fat ones on a filter that’ll cost an additional $250 every other month was a bad move.
Is this typical for the rest of you all or do they seem to last longer? If so how long? (Sure I know it depends on what your using.) I’m using baltic burch now that I know the supplied draft board is a bad idea. I’ve also used some plywood from Lowes which I’ve grown to loathe.
Also, I saw in another thread where someone suggested a “pre-filter” which helps the air filter itself to last longer. Anyone got a link or name for one they are using. Or any other information that would help find a “pre-filter”?
Thanks in advance for the help! I greatly appreciate it!
