I have been making these for fun for many of my friends at work. I thought I would share the fun with our Glowforge Community. I bought a case of these 3" x 12" clear glass tile on the clearance table at the local Home Store. They provide pretty good results with fonts and images. I might do a few for gifts around the holidays too.
And thanks for the info! 50% off is pretty awesome. Unfortunately my local store is out. So are the several surrounding stores. Closest to me is ~30 minutes away. 17 left. I think I might just have to go get 'em!
Discussion of manual settings is limited to Beyond the Manual category though, so I’m moving this topic there. If you decide to remove the settings I can move it back, or you can just leave it as is, whatever you like.
I bought out the stock of the 3 x 6 ones at my Lowe’s. They were on the shipping dock, ready to be returned to the manufacturer. They actually had to return them to inventory so I could buy them. But I got a 90% discount, so…yeah.
Excellent! I look forward to seeing your results. I hope you post a pic or two for us to see. One of my colleagues asked for a Tesla Model 3 line art on a glass tile today. What a cool medium to work on!!
These are beautiful. However, I must be failing somewhere. I have loaded my glass (from Lowes, same brand) and set my presets as indicated (focal .310 Speed 1000, Full Power, GrayScale Vary, and 3.40 LPI. The back engraved, but nothing is showing on the other side. It just isn’t cutting through the painted back of the glass. Any help would be appreciated.
