Hi Everyone, I just got my GlowForge yesterday and I’ve been working with it ever since. This is my first post, as well. I thought I’d share what I did today. We are a Navy family, and I made this for our son who is also Navy and just graduated from Nuclear Training and is about to head out to the Fleet on his first sea duty station.
Holy crap. On your first day. You were well prepped for this. You could totally sell those to Navy personnel and merchant marines. Just figure out a way to add some sort of plaque on it to identify the event.
And I will point out my first day was a cutout of a large glowforge logo in spray painted Luon that I proceeded to photograph me delivering from our birthing mannequin during the PRU days (you had to be there)
You are far ahead of the game then and I can’t wait to see where you take it. Luckily I was exactly in the same boat and knew the design end of it’s and it’s proof how easy the GF is to operate. A lot of people get very frustrated with the machine and don’t realize it’s their design skill that are hindering them.
I’ve had my GF for nearly 2 years now, and I’m still like, “Look at this neato picture I put on a box lid.”
Then there’s aradia.robertson, and “Look at this amazing thing I just made on my first day!”
I need more practice, if I’m going to get up to that level. I have not had any design training since 7th grade art class, though. I’ll get there. I’m not jealous or envious–OK, maybe I am. But that only make me look forward, and I’m not wishing ill upon anyone else. Nice job, @aradia.robertson!
