Hey Siri, setup mac.


Siri setup has broken the last 4 macOS upgrades I’ve attempted.


My dad’s nickname was Mack, and he’s passed away so any pranks set up to fool him would be in vain.:upside_down_face:

Seriously: Since the GFUI (Glowforge User Interface) uses a web browser, this question would need to be more specific about which browser you are using. Always prefers Chrome since that gets the most testing and use, but folks seem to be ok with Safari.

If you are talking about setting up the Glowforge using a Mac, it’s still a browser based operation, so fire up Safari and go through the steps.

I like using my phone to talk to the Glowforge first. That way I have my computer browser and network connection always there for the handoff.

Very interested in what this questions turns into.
