First Cut on Hephaestus


#1

The Glowforge is out of the box and set up to run less than 15 min, Hephaestus is up and burning, and of course the founders ruler.

so cool, I will be busy.

Thanks @dan and all the Glowforge team for a great and easy to set up machine.


#2

Awesome! (That first cut feels fantastic, doesn’t it? I squeeed all over myself!) :smile:


#3

Fantastic…glad to hear it was up and running without a hitch!
Cant wait to see what ya do next…maybe a big reminder for when to eat and such…lol


#4

Fun, fun, fun! I like that table, too–consistent with the elegance of the Glowforge.


#5

Great! Enjoy the exploration. :sunglasses: Such a clean uncluttered work area. Probably won’t stay that way…
(on a side note, nice papyrus!)


#6

Yay! Congrats!!!:champagne:. Happy first cut, can’t wait to see what’s next!


#7

Congrats! Did you get that table at Costco? It looks very similar to one I’ve seen there and I spent a long time drooling over it before settling for IKEA.


#8

yes it is the Costco table and it is a beast.


#9

fabulous name. Congrats!


#10

That’s part of the reason I liked it so much! :grinning:


#11

Ha! I almost stole your name. I was trying to decide what to name mine and my daughter suggested Hephaestus


#12

Very good. Congrats. Love how the Glowforge looks, even with an exhaust. It fits in nicely as a tech device in a room and doesn’t look like it belongs in a garage or workshop.

And thanks for the reminder to make a big pot of something or other. Tuesday’s arrival has a fundraising dinner in the evening, so I’ll be postponing till Wednesday evening.


#13

you know what they say, great minds, and all. Sorry I took it first.:smiley_cat:


#14

Actually, I decided on Mephistopheles. Otherwise it wouldn’t have been available for you. It arrived on the 28th :wink:
Hope to see all the things you laser. Have fun!


#15

Congrats02


#16

Yes, a beautiful piece of equipment!


#17

Well poop … my GF literally just arrived and is sitting on the floor and I was going to use that name as well … wonder if my backup is taken (no, i’m not saying what it is yet!).


#18

why not, i can’t use it. :smiley_cat:


#19

but others could!

@n_s_clements I don’t think you have to have a unique name.
I’m pretty sure you can name your Glowforge Hephaestus. Just probably not a great idea to name all three of your own the same thing. So you can distinguish the machines that you have access to.
Go ahead. Hephaestus is a great name.
