I’ve had the glowforge for a bit now, got it on one of the first-wave deliveries I think. I haven’t had a ton of time to noodle with it, since I’ve actually spent most of my free time working to get rid of a lot of clutter (we moved from a house to a 1 bedroom apartment, ha!).
So, while I’ve been between jobs, I’ve been taking some time to work on a few glowforge projects.
I made a few things for my wife’s office, like some Christmas ornaments (not shown), as a gift for a friend of ours there we etched a Qi charger, too. Oh, and I designed a caddy for my bathroom. That’s been really, really useful to save on counter space.
Most recently, I wanted to see if I could make stickers, so I took a mixed medium approach of printing out some sticker sheets, then dialing in the laser to only cut through the first layer, so you can peel them off the backing.
Getting the alignment right was a bit of a pain. I ended up taking a piece of draft board and cutting out a window. So now I just align the print to the frame and it seems to work pretty well!
My next project after getting a few sticker sheets done is going to be designing a few typography experiments, shadow boxes, and other decorative things. I’m just having fun with it.
