The last few days I’ve been having a lot of trouble getting jobs to process and having the GlowForge print. Occasionally it’s the generic error, but most of the time the UX simply returns from ‘preparing your design’ to the edit screen. I have also had several cases where the GFUI says that the job is processed and ready to start, but the button on the GlowForge never lights up.
Power cycling the printer didn’t help. Though I did notice that sometimes calibration took a very long time.
My internet connection is fast (1 gbps fiber). And the GlowForge has been working fine for weeks. I’m printing the same things (there are a lot of snowflakes to print, for my holiday art project/gifts). So I’m not sure why things are problematic now. Given that the GlowForge servers run on Google App Engine, which are a managed service, I wouldn’t expect it to be an operational issue on their end.
Any other ideas?
