After lots and lots of trial and error, I finally managed to produce some items which I am really proud of with my Glowforge Plus.
I went from not being able to even print on any material, to downloading inkscape and learning the software to now using GIMP to edit my photos
- Asked by a Veteran Charity to make some poppy signs, my first job and they were over the moon!
- Made a plaque for my aunt for xmas, this was my first attempt using GIMP as oppose to uploading a photo straight to it.
- Made a plaque for my friend’s graduation, my first commission gift! This took the most trial and error, I was concerned with the amount of material I wasted to get there but I am happy with the results.
- Produced a sign for my toolbox, nothing special but I have fixed it on my toolbox and even scanned the nameplate made for me when I was an apprentice.
I have also messed about with a few keyrings and similar things. Really happy with how things are going, hope to use the community more now and turn this into a serious hobby. One concern I have is printing photos, does any one have any advice to make it easier? I have to keep doing test prints on every photo considering none of them use the exact same settings, does any one else have a similar issue and if so how did you overcome it?
Happy new year all
