Cutting my own design

Can anyone give me advice on cutting with GlowForge. I have downloaded my own design and not sure if it will cut it. So, is there a way to set the printer up, to cute your personal design? My wife and I are very new to this whole computer stuff. Thanks in advance for any help!

Yes. Start with the tutorials provided and you will have a much better understanding of how the machine works, and how to set up your own prints.



To expand on @eflyguy’s excellent advice, here’s a whole bunch more info. It’s a learning curve, but a fun one:

Welcome to the forum, we look forward to seeing what you make!


Welcome. You already have gotten pointed in the right direction. After doing the first three cuts, try a simple design of your own, and remember there are lots of people here that will help you when you get confused. Here is a link to lots of info: Community Glowforge Tutorials: Table of Contents
