I’m making a custom table in advance of my Glowforge’s arrival and I would like more detail on its dimensions. My plan is to put silicon pads with raised edges on the top for each of the Glowforge’s legs to keep it in place even if it is bumped. I don’t want it falling off the table.
For reference, here’s what the web site says:
Glowforge Basic & Pro:
38" x 20.75" x 8.25" (965mm x 527mm x 210mm)
55 lbs (25 kg)
Glowforge Air Filter:
38" x 20.75" x 7" (965mm x 527mm x 178mm)
25 lbs (11 kg)
From looking at the pictures, I would guess that there are four round legs, maybe 1.5" in diameter and maybe 1/4" tall. But this is just a guess. What does the bottom of the Glowforge look like? Is it flat or does it have short legs to raise it off the surface? If so, how many are there, how big are they, and what are their precise positions?
Also, what are the dimensions of the bottom of the Glowforge. I’m assuming that the dimensions above are maximum dimensions, which look to be the top from the photos.
Finally, how tall is the Glowforge + Air Filter? From the pictures, it looks like the combined height of the Glowforge + filter is shorter than the implied height of 15.25" (the pictures make it look much shorter). I am planning my table height based on a total height of around 15". If the height is much shorter, I might adjust my plans.
On a related note … how much of a pain is it going to be to pick up our Glowforges and put the air filters underneath them?
