As reported, I received my Email on September 5th. Today (September 11th) I received a UPS MyChoice notification that a 14.00 lbs. shipment from MODUSLINK / GLOWFORGE would be arriving tomorrow. I am assuming that this is the box containing proofgrade materials. I have not received any notifications directly from Glowforge for the proofgrade materials or for the Glowforge unit itself.
My question: what has been the experience of other Owners? Have you received shipment of the Glowforge unit without notifications? (Forum searches seem to indicate yes, but is there a pattern?) Has the Glowforge unit arrived the same day as the materials?
I am just trying to plan whether I should be asking for a day off to be home when the unit arrives. I have already sent an inquiry off to support with more specifics re: my order # etc. but with a response not guaranteed for several days I wanted to see if collective wisdom has any advice.
