Today was the big day! Emails have me pumped up, ready to open and print in minutes!
I got it all set up in my workshop, which is inside a house with fans for cooling but no AC. I didn’t get a temp reading but outside it was in the 80’s. I’m assuming inside in the shade with fans it would be less.
At first it went straight to cooling and I couldn’t even load a file. Then I turned it off and pointed fans at it for a few hours. Then I tried again and got far enough to press print…but when it told me to press the button it immediately said it was paused with no explanation. Then when I hit cancel it said it needed to cool.
Big day felt like a big let down. I might not be able to use this thing. No refunds now. I wish I would have known I couldn’t use it in my workshop. From the reading I’ve done on the Recent revelations of the limits on temperature it seems like the only place I could use it is in an air conditioned room.
Anybody have plans to hack together an Air Conditioner just for the Glowforge? I’d rather not try and cool my whole shop down to 72 degrees.
It really seems like a huge bummer, any fixes or tips from the company?
