We can’t wait to see many of you at Maker Faire this weekend! I’m attaching a map of the grounds so you can find us. We’ll have a few things going on.
We’ll be tracing your designs on to hardwood squares and engraving them. Same idea as last Maker Faire, but with Proofgrade beta materials. You’re going to love how they look.
Every hour on the hour, we’re going to do a print, lines and materials permitting.
At 1:00 on Saturday, @Shell and I are giving a talk on the big stage. I’m going to pick someone out of the audience and Shell is going to design something for them and print it, from scratch, in 20 minutes!
We can’t wait to see you there. If you come by the booth, ask for @Bailey, @Rita, or I and we’ll try to say hello - at a minimum we’ve got some cool Glowforge-logo sharpies (perfect for tracing) that we’d love to give you!
Oh: and we will be running over the public internet, so things may be slooooooow. Makerfaire has promised us a dedicated drop (we’ll use our own wifi network to avoid congestion) but no promises about print speed. CES was a little hit or miss, but we’ve improved wifi since then and fingers crossed it’ll be better. Conferences are the ultimate wifi stress test.
Also as I know folks are curious, there’s a bunch of stuff we’re not going to show for various reasons, including things like engraving visitors’ phones and macbooks (legal not excited about that), showing the air filter (final plastics aren’t ready), and showing the Pro (can’t show a Class 4 laser in public). I don’t think we’ll have time to show high-res engraving and will have to stick to draft mode, but we might be able to squeeze in something small and high res during the hourly demos. 1.3k lines per inch is pretty sweeeet.
Can’t wait to see people there!
