I know many people have purchased the GF Pro for many different reasons, including:
- Always going for the best version available.
- Avoiding buyers remorse/fear of missing out.
- More powerful laser.
- Better optics.
- Better cooling/longer operating time/handling higher ambient temperatures.
- Longer warranty.
However, although restricted to only a 1/4" gap, for some people the Pass Through slot and associated functionality is important.
From my understanding the extra functionality that the Pro has is camera assisted registration. i.e start lasering a pattern/image then when the GF stops (auto/manual?), push the material further through the slot and the GF will auto align to continue the pattern/image on the new part of the material.
Some of my thoughts on potential uses for the pass through and registration functionality:
Large cardboard models (think Autodesk 123D Make).
Lasering skateboard decks (might need to leave the front door open and override the interlocks).
Custom room panels.
Larger leather works (e.g. bags), to avoid having to sew together smaller pieces.
Model glider wings.
Cutting patterns out or on material.
I also think a section in the GF Catalog of designs specifically for the GF Pro would be a good idea.
My question is, how are Pro buyers, who are keen on the pass through slot and functionality, expecting to use this Pro feature in detail (not just general ideas)?
