First Print Crab!


It’s here it’s here! Got all unpacked and put together. Even after reading all the warnings in the user manual, I managed to touch the side window on the printhead and left a nice fat fingerprint on it, which I wiped off with my shirt. I hope nothing burns down because of my haste.

Printed the ruler, then had a go on my first real print. We were at Joe’s Crab Shack the other day and my daughter took to their little crab logo, so I brought home one of their placemats, scanned the crab, cleaned it up in Pixelmator, traced it in Inkscape, and converted to SVG. It’s not the most exciting print ever, but it’s my first!


Enjoy them while they are still going! What a happy crab!:smile:


Looks great! Can’t wait to see the other stuff you come up with! :grinning:


But it is the most exciting print ever to your little one! One of my favorite things about the Glowforge is the ability to make simple, fun things to delight people. :gift:


Awwww, what a nice tribute piece. Now I want some crab!


So cute!


Nice! Enjoy the exploration!
Get yourself some lens cleaner packets, you will need them.


Thank God I’m not the only one :joy:

Congrats and I think it’s an awesome first print!


He is SO cute!


Oh I do that almost every time I use mine… figure if the laser can burn through wood and acrylic, a fingerprint won’t phase it :smiley:

Congrats and have fun!


Cute first project! Congrats on your own :glowforge:


Wait, what? Your comment made me look it up, they’re going bankrupt! I didn’t know.


Very adorable! My favorite thing in life … is seeing joy from a child.


Great first project! Such an adorable little crab. Can’t wait to see what logos you whip up next!
