The new AI stuff seems to be a hit.


“grow its subscription business”. I wish it was “to design the next generation machines”.

Dan announced the AI stuff in one of the recent monthly updates, I think, but this is the first reference I’ve seen in the wild.

Methinks Xtool is about to crush them on the hardware side. Thus far, the “reviews” seem positive but it is early days.

Unless Dan has a GF2.0 well along in a top secret lair, GF is in serious danger of getting lapped. Based on this article, I believe they don’t have anything close to ready and are focused elsewhere.

The AI thing has thus far proven useless to me and the stuff I value (example: actual folders or moving the focus command to the top level of the UI) keep getting skipped for improvements that I do not appreciate.

Given the relatively short half-file of the pro models I have had (I am on #3) I suspect that I will be having to make the choice between a 4th refurbished pro or something else. More power, a larger working area, what looks to be a better crumb tray, and a camera you can actually use for alignment all seem very attractive. Add in the potential for curved surface cutting/ engraving, and automated passthrough and it comes close to “take my money” territory. If the UI is reasonable then it will be hard to not take a very hard look.



The other part of that sentence was “add new product features”, and just below it said " The product: Glowforge makes a line of laser-based 3D printers"…so maybe it is.
