I’m imagining an ideal placement for the glowforge is on a sturdy desk or bench, on a flat and level non skid floor, probably with the desk/bench mechanically anchored.
I imagine it would be safe that, as a laser, we could make a generalization and call it a ‘precision instrument’.
(I think by now many people see where I’m going with this )
There are moving parts in the glowforge, some weight will be shifted, during operation. A 40$ 5 year old walmart desk will have a few millimeters of sway in it. Some people cough may just have a cheap desk placed on carpeting that is in thier mancave/computer room… will the typical person with a cheap desk have to worry about vibrations and things like that caused by the GF that could potentially cause a bad cut? Or, could it be disclaimed in big bold lettering and be made clear in the setup guide exactly what type of setting it should and could not be in?
That may help some of us cough that perhaps haven’t thought about it before, and don’t want to think about ripping up wall to wall carpeting.
