Ah, yes. Let me try the phone. I never do that. I live in the Bay Area, the self-proclaimed tech hub of the world. It’s rare-ish for things to go down. It–or course-does when I need to finish the architectural model for a presentation.
It blows my mind that I can’t use a Glowforge in the middle of the Bay Area to hit this deadline without phone hopping. In general, I like the Glowforge. However, this need to go through WiFi has my vote for the worst product decision of any item I’ve ever purchased.
Is there any feasibility to running client-side scripts on a home server? Something as simple as a Raspberry PI near the box. How hard can it be to convert a vector file into a cut path?
I’m sure the question has been asked ad infinitum, but “Glowforge, what on earth were you thinking?” Having some simple conversion scripts on a home server might change my recommendation to those looking for laser cutters from “Run like hell from the Glowforge.”
