Went to @PrintToLaser’s place and got to check out a GlowForge before I receive mine (hopefully in a few weeks). I’m really impressed to be honest and I can’t wait to get my own.
I really liked the setup of his workspace. You could tell there was a lot of creativity going on there.He is really talented and definitely knows what he’s doing. I am very grateful for him letting me (a stranger) into his home.
Unfortunately this was the only file we were able to print out (a commission from a friend of mine).
For some reason the browser was having issues uploading my files… I mainly work in Illustrator so maybe the SVG saved out from there could be an issue? I’m hesitant with uploading my personal work to the web browser app because I’m worried about the security of my files. Personally, I would love to have a local program that I could install onto my computer and print files from there.
I learned a lot about the setup for this machine and how the ventilation will work. Hopefully you guys will be seeing more work from me when I receive my machine.
I also want to be a part of some material swaps in the future. I have a lot of extra plastic that I don’t use. I look forward meeting other GlowForge owners in Colorado.
All in all, thank you again to @PrintToLaser for letting me get to try out his GlowForge!
