My son was super excited to give me my Glowforge Pro as an early Christmas present today, and I was equally excited to receive it!
For a first test cut, I made a founder’s ruler. Surprisingly it’s marked in mm instead of cm … but still beautiful. For a second cut, I needed a window panel to hold the hose and block out the cold air and exhaust from re-entering my workroom, so I cut a piece of MDF I had handy into an 18"x6" board with a 4.1" hole in it for the dryer hose, and that worked out great … always fun to make something functional early on with a new machine. Then we cut a coaster, that worked out 90% OK … seems like the camera isn’t precisely accurate on positioning and one edge of the coaster went off the edge of the material. And finally, I cut an Escher puzzle found on thingiverse and it came out just amazing looking.
I am having a problem where the machine just won’t stay online. It’s pretty frustrating, to have to keep turning it off and on and only managing to get maybe 1/2 of the print attempts to work. Is there a known issue here/known troubleshooting steps? I’ll have to file a support case, I suppose.
