Tend not to like drawing attention to what I do (unless it’s tongue in cheek), but Glowforge has kindly sent a Pre-Release unit my way. So first impression. I must say the darn thing is built like a tank and pretty much idiot proof. The S/W will need to add features and evolve but it’s capable. Only had time so far to print the standard founder’s ruler and the luggage tag shown below. Both of course were flawless.
Last summer I ran across an old rotting 1966 Scotty travel trailer for a couple hundred bucks. Took about 2 months to replace the entire front, back, roof, half of both sides and much of the interior. But we’re on the road and ready for the August solar eclipse trip.
So, the wife wanted to print a little Scotty tag. This morning she quickly sketched a Scotty design, we superimposed it on the Glowforge luggage tag, dropped in some Proofgrade Maple and pressed print. Pretty painless. 7 minutes later voila.
Her quick sketch.
