Fire! (But with a picture of the actual fire this time)

So, while Glowforge is working on getting me the parts I need, I discovered my browser froze on the last image from fire that damaged it. Let this be a lesson to keep an eye on acrylics when doing small lettering image

Was that a cut or score? I did that on a full size 12x20 wood sheet horizontally and even at that scale it was a lot of work to get all the tiny pieces out! Looks like your layout was vertical so they would be so much finer cuts! Wow!

Woah! Engraving/Cutting The Lord’s Prayer and ended up with a fire? There is no safe comment to make here.

Your picture will be another reminder to all that we must be attentive at all times.

Oh man, so sorry. Glad it’s fixable with new parts and not a total loss though. Your pic is a great example of how important paying attention is. I think people tend to really underestimate the danger of acrylic and how hot it can get. Hope you’re up and running soon!

I see you already emailed us about this and we’re working on it there, so I’m going to close this topic.
