Bed Image

Is there a way to bypass the “upload your design” when you first open the glowforge app?

If I am just trying to see the bed…I have to load a design if I close the app and re-open it.

Not directly. You could upload a design though, delete the stuff out of it (or just upload a blank SVG), and bookmark that URL instead of going to


Thanks…I’m not worried about uploading them. I am having problems with my machine and I am having to go back through that series of steps over and over to see if any efforts made have resolved it.

Not having much luck and my latest alert " There is an obstacle" was the print head hitting the the very end of the bar it is mounted on.

Thanks for your quick response. You are always so helpful.

Thanks for the answer @jbmanning5, that’s right. I’m going to close this thread - if the problem reoccurs, go ahead and post a new topic. Thanks for letting us know about this!
