(This was part of my post on an article on made on glowforge, someone asked me to post here)
I had some feedback on glowforge Premium:
1.) $15 a month seems high. $5/month seems more reasonable
2.) Has anyone noticed any speedup of jobs since premium started? or are we to expect the free jobs to start running way slower?
3.) While I LOVE that we can add fonts in the interface, we can not have those fonts follow a path, or even rotate letters, both features I would expect if you are paying $180/year for the software use.
I am wishy-washy on whether I want to spend the $15/month … I like the font selection better at dafont.com , much more choices, and the fonts are organized unlike glowforge interface.
But, it is quicker to not use inkscape to create fonts layed out the way I like.
I’m curious as to what others think?
As long as I am giving feedback, I was wondering, have they created a way for you to see how many hours of lasering you’ve done on your glowforge?
I saw it mentioned years ago as a desired feature, but have not seen it yet.
On more feature request for premium would be the “Repeat Last Job” option, so the Ultra Fast servers could just redo what I had just done on the previous 10 jobs. I laser cutting boards, Christmas ornaments, shot glasses, bottle openers and often need to repeat the last job. If processing a job is compute intensive, why redo it?
Or, could there be a way to process it on the local computer, and submit the processed job to the web interface? (Getting away from the need to keep increasing the glowforge server farm?)
