Inspecting the troops


#1

@Shell and I stayed late after Laser Thursday last night to play around with some non-laser-related office toys.


Can we see pictures of the Glowforge units in the office?

That’s just mean.

(Zipping by too quickly for us salivating dogs to pick up any details!) :smile:


#3

baahhh i want one…
although you can read the sticker on the last printer:
WHOAforge
Optimal F----? (food? floor?)
Chipboard
(wide kerf on thicker material)

Love the new office space…


#5

What are you riding


#6

Looks like the new Segway.


#7

You are a tease @dan


#8

I notice all three GFs are situated in central locations not near a wall, with silvery ductwork that seems to go down to the floor, so it would be interesting to know what kind of exhaust it all ties in to.


#9

Those are plugged in to external air filters made by a third party company, although one of the Glowforge units yesterday was running on a Glowforge air filter - it just wasn’t in view.


#10

That begs the question, did it perform as expected? Or would you rather not say?


#11

Oh, how I would love a office tour video. Just saying. :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Totally! It passed the “Dan’s nose” test with flying colors… spinning up more quantitative testing now.


#13

Yahooo! So glad to know there is a GF filter somewhere! This is the first mention I’ve seen of an actual unit in existence.


#14

Thanks for inviting us in. Subzero refrigeration there? Nice and roomy!


#15

That’s what I was thinking! I paused/played through it just so I could see a bit more. :grinning:


#16

It IS the new Segway! My husband and I bought one a few years ago, and though so much fun and an amazing experience, it was a money pit. Anytime anything happened to any part, it was so expensive to maintain that we finally sold it. Loved it though.


#17

Amazon just had them on sale for $700. I think they’re $800 now.

I have a cheaper Chinese knockoff (see a pattern here :grinning:) that is now banned everywhere because people didn’t read the charging directions on toasted the batteries. LiPo batteries are not simply plug in for a few hours or days. Heck my drone batteries have a special bag to store them in so they don’t catch other stuff on fire if they go off.


#18

Now we know where all that crowd funding money went. :wink:


#19

Help Dan pay for that house!

looking good there! Was it filmed with a quadcopter or just a very nice gimbal+ camera?

iDD


#20

If memory serves, our fridge was a Craigslist special.

That’s how we’ll make our getaway.

That was @shell following me around on a second segway with a gimbal-stabilized iphone.
