Hello all, just ordered a pro and was curious if it ships with any materials to get you going.
Yes, you’ll get a box of proofgrade stuff to get you started.
Yes, mine came with the following materials:
6x Medium Draftboard
3x Medium Clear Acrylic
1x Medium Basswood Plywood
1x Medium Walnut Hardwood
1x Medium Natural Leather
Is this confirmed for new orders? I know they shipped a box of “we’re sorry” materials for free to most of the pre-order backers, but I don’t know if they ship that to new orders…
Yes, they include a starter pack of pg materials. It’s not as much material as was included on the pre-order packages, but enough to get ya going.
Congratulations! While you are waiting for your machine, the time would be well spent in going over some of the tutorials in the Glowforge Tips and Tricks section:
Thank you all for the responses!
My starter pack came in the same package with the crumb tray.
Welcome @jamierussell to the forum. So much good information is on the forum from the years of waiting and almost two years of making, counting the early beta testers. I don’t want to presume anything, but I’ll offer some advise:
Here is a good topic to review:
And some of the most consistent issues that folks deal with are
- network setup and connection reliability
- Material flatness and thickness settings
- Understanding the lid camera image and design placement and eventual cuts
- Venting solutions
- Operating environment temps
Welcome to our wonderful forum! We’ll be looking forward to seeing what you make.
