MakerFaire convert - Excited to join the community!

Wanted to say hi to everybody!

I had a great time going to the Glowforge booth at Maker Faire this past weekend. I’d been on the hunt for a new way to laser my prop/costume hobby projects since Techshop shut down in November, and was happy to see a crowd form around a machine etching folks’ iPhones. A guy named Dan answered my questions quickly and confidently; I found out later he’s kind of a big deal around here :slight_smile:

There was a huge buzz about maker tools around the hall - Glowforge, Dremel, Epilog, and about a dozen 3D printing operations. Well, I went home with a stack of brochures and did my homework researching. End result: hit ‘buy now’ on a Glowforge Basic this afternoon.

Excited for my June 3rd delivery, and to be apart of this community!

Chief factotum and general dogsbody…aka the CEO. (The entire group are such good sports it makes it fun to hang out around here.) :slightly_smiling_face:

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the madhouse…you made a good choice. :wink:

Welcome, and yes you were quite lucky to get some time with dan. I went to the MFNY last fall and got far more time with him than I deserved. The man’s knowledge is both deep and broad making him very fun to talk with.

Welcome to the fold. Take some time to explore some of the tutorials. @Jules, @marmak3261, @markevans36301 were wonderful resources while I was waiting. Then we will teach you the secret handshake. :sunglasses:

You’ll love it. I just received mine and it works way better than it has any right to for the money. I still wonder how they sell this hardware for $2500… it’s crazy.
