I am just letting you know that a standard error these printers have is the LED Circuit board going out in the back of the Glowforge.
I reached out to Glowforge customer service and the only fix to my $7,155.23 printer is another fee of $1651 plus any applicable tax. The only option is to pay for a refurbished version on my originally new Glowforge Pro.
I am on multiple forums where other customers have had this part shipped to them for a whopping $22 but for some reason this option is only if you seem to contest their company’s core value which is unfortunate. If I would have known I would have to replace a whole printer 3 years later, I would have put my investment in another printer. I was a big glowforge positive reviewer until I realized I would become a victim to these prices. The company seems to have no remorse for part replacements for their customers. I was in line to purchase my second glowforge pro but this news definitely changed my view on this company and their overall customer service to their customers. Not only do I have no operational laser printer, I have to shutdown my business and take a $7.5k loss or be forced to pay $2k more for a refurbished version on my glowforge.
This average total of a machine I bought in 2021, will be $8,806 + .
Please review what I have said before going down this slope at the 3/4 year mark of this printer.
