I am so sorry for those who visited us this morning! Somehow last night, after we left, every plug got moved to one power strip. As a result, the printers on display were having mysterious errors that were cancelling prints when the cut started (the highest-power draw). It was also causing the booth wifi to fail so we thought that was the problem, and it took even longer to sort out. It took us nearly an hour to diagnose, so we had people waiting up to two hours (for the fix + through the line) for their print.
It’s a good reminder that you’ll need a regular household circuit for your Glowforge + air filter with nothing else on it, as both of them combined draw about 1600 watts combined during the absolute peak operation.
It’s a good learning we’ll explore further back in the office so your Glowforge will be even better - but it made things really pokey this morning and wasted people’s time. I apologize.
