How do you supply the name for your GF?

I went through setup, and successfully printed my Founder’s ruler, but was never presented with an option to name the machine. It just has a random 6 character name.


that was one of the questions they ask me during the set up, you set a name for for adding the machine to my wifi network. I do not know if you can go back and change it.


I never got asked for a name, it just told me to look for the “Glowforge XXX-XXX” wifi network. I guess I’m stuck with a lousy name.

that was when I got to assign the name.

I believe it asks at the end of the set up process. Either way, you can contact Support and they will get you squared away with the name that you want.


Thanks for the answer @jbmanning5.
