My older daughter has a fascination with kuchikopi and since it was a fairly simple character to draw we used it for our first scan and cut test.
Nice job, and very good draw
Awesome-sauce! (That’s really cute artwork too! I don’t draw that well.)
(More and more beta projects showing up daily…I’m a happy little camper!)
Love it! Well done.
You can´t be worse than @dan hahaha just kidding but if Dan would have the best skills in drawing, perhaps he would been an artist and would had never invented the Glowforge , so I’m glad.
Oh yes…I can.
Yes! nicely done!
Great! Someone will be having lots more fun very soon.
Super cute! (I’m a big fan of super cute!)
If that is the first cut, sorry I’m not familiar with that character, based on the condition of the honeycomb, the beta forges must see a lot of pre-delivery testing.
I’m not opposed as I think trucks should come with a pre-dented bed just to remind their owners it’s a truck and is meant to be used as such.
I wouldn’t mind at all if the general release forges come with some bed charring too… hope they manage to squeak in a test or two to see that they are all hunky-dory before shipping.
If they test cut, as opposed to just firing it up or cutting something that doesn’t char, they’ll probably use a sacrificial honeycomb. Keeps the complaints about them shipping “used” glowforges to a minimum.
I’ve had a couple 3D printers with the test print still on the bed when delivered and a devil of a time getting it off…
I wonder if, just for amusement, they could include a little report card from final testing with the power numbers and so forth.
Kind of freaks people out when they see me do it, but I use a watchmaker’s hammer ($5 at http://www.harborfreight.com/watchmakers-hammer-with-6-heads-99895.html ) and give 'em a good whack from the side. For flat prints, I use a 2" putty knife with said hammer. YMMV
Hammer, world, nails?
