A funny thing happened on the way to the forum or should I say Glowforge Base Camp.
Instead of just getting a pic of my son and I standing outside the Glowforge Offices during our visit to Seattle, we got an invite to come in and meet Dan, Bailey and the gang.
He showed me how simple it was to type in some text, put a rounded box around it in Illustrator then upload it onto the Glowforge software screen…choose which Glowforge to send it to, then using the camera, resize it, place it where you want on the material, select your material from the list of proof grade and hit the glowing button. So fast and simple.
For any “laser newbies” you’ll be cutting your first test piece right out of the box…the software does alot more than I imagined…including a few things I did not know… It is easy and user-friendly.
Then my son wanted to try the trace feature. Dan had him draw a quick doodle with a sharpie on paper.
Scanned the drawing in the Glowforge bed via the camera, the software automatically interpreted the image to be able to click on what to raster and what to cut.
From paper to finished product was very fast and accurate.
It may be hard to experience how passionate Dan is about Glowforge just from being on the forum…but I can definitely tell you the passion and sincerity is real.
It was awesome to look across the office floor and see a small army of Glowforges knowing they will soon be sitting on alot of desks, work tables and in creative places by the end of the year.
Thank you, Dan, for making this a “best day ever” experience. So says my son😀
Looking even more forward to getting our own Glowforge in the not so distant future!!
