This has been suggested elsewhere, and it seems like a fairly easy and REALLY useful addition.
We are doing production of 50+ pieces at a time, sometimes it takes 5-10 min to render the design, and then cutting/engraving can take an hour. Obviously we’re multitasking, and the beauty of the Glowforge is that you can just hit print and go, have the Glowforge constantly working for you in the background.
But there needs to be some (audible and/or visual) cue when it’s ready for you to take the next step – either hitting the glowing button or changing out the piece. Ours is in another room because of the noise, and with the heat/AC, we just don’t hear the thing stop, and we lose valuable production time while it’s sitting there idle.
Can you PLEASE add (with the ability to turn on/off each feature)
- A pop-up or visual notification when the Glowforge is done (rendering or done printing)
- An alarm sound in the browser
- A sound on the glowforge itself (maybe they didn’t include that hardware, maybe that’s not possible)
