I’m in a real bind here. My glowforge ribbon cable lost adhesion during a print and crumpled itself. I was sitting right next to the machine and caught it as soon as it happened but it started smoking immediately (the cable). I stopped the print, let the fan have a few seconds, then powered it down.
The print I was in the middle of is pro-bono for a local theater camp my kid attends. I designed and was cutting silverware head props for a dancing number in Beauty and the Beast Jr. The show is this Friday!
Does anyone know of a library or maker space or open-use (pay per hour or something) glowforge directory? All I can find are a few laser cutting companies that I’m sure will charge an arm and leg.
There are maybe 9-10 “sheets” left to print, and each take 5-6 minutes, on Home Depot HardBoard. I was so close!
I designed them to be modular so the lengths could be shorter for little kids, or the top could be changed for a different show. I’ll be posting it on the made on gf section when I have time.
