Hours of use

I saw this mentioned in an earlier archived post, but didn’t see an answer. Is there any way to see the current hours of usage on my Glowforge? This would be helpful for cleanings and such.

AFAIK only Glowforge knows. Why? It’s a mystery. I’m pretty sure it’s being tallied somewhere in The Cloud for Glowforge support’s purposes. You’re not the first, nor the last, to ask about this. :sunglasses:

I don’t think we have any evidence that Glowforge Inc is tracking it either. They produced their annual “year in review” mail based on the number of jobs submitted to their cloud servers, not using machine logs. And the two numbers are not the same: if you submit a 2 hour job to the cloud but then hit cancel to reposition it and submit it again, your “year in review” mail will go up by 4 hours even though you didn’t run your machine for 4 hours.

There is nothing in the accessible logs to indicate total usage.
