So I purchased the middle of the line glowforge and I was so excited to get it to be able to use it to make my business go further than it has and after opening it all up I was a bit disappointed to learn we would have to pay a 50.00 a month charge to be able to use their templates and other designs. I spent my max so spending the extra 1000. For the little machine to help with the overheating and smell.
I wish I would have because we tried it once with a puzzle from a photo my son took. The hose fell from the window into the room and the whole house smelled. That being said, my family thought it would be best to use the machine in my garage.
We finally got to try it again and after we heard the machine begin and we went back about a half hour later and we noticed nothing happened. We assumed it was because it was just way to hot in there to get it to go.
We have been waiting to try it again and it is all these months later because living in Texas we still are in the 90’s.
The machine was and is in a very shady area detached from my home and I can not afford to spend another 1000.00 for the other item to use it in my home. We were going to stick my outdoor air conditioner under my glowforge using my fans also to see how it works if at all but then I couldn’t find the month free code to try the app that came with my machine. I am thinking I will message the company and see if they will resend me that paper that came with my machine with the code for the free month and then try again. This is not working out real well so far. I figured one of the items I wanted to make for my siblings was a chopping board with one of my mom’s special recipe’s we all loved.
My family lost my aunt and uncle from covid when covid began. Then the week of Christmas to New Years we lost my mom, my uncle and then my dad. And then right after we lost my aunt whose husband died with my parents all from covid. This machine I bought to help my business because since covid I haven’t been able to do shows or work and this year isn’t looking good either so I bought this machine to help me and my family pay our bills and all of this has happened now.
I pray I didn’t waste the little money I had to get this machine because it is my last hope. When Mother’s Day came my husband decided to use my first holiday without my mother to tell me he was leaving me because I should have mourned them all already and me not working was another issue for him. I pray that this machine starts working soon because now being on my own with two kids still living home with me funds are horrible needed. Anyway, has anyone else had these problems? For those who haven’t signed up for the app using their templates were/are you able to work the machine with text and other things without being a member on it? Thank you so much for all of your help and suggestions.
