This is just beginning to sink in.
My Pre-release glowforge engraving options just began offering a spectrum of power and density control… while I was sleeping!
That weapons grade software team just introduced some handy design elements into the user interface. How many lasers offer that degree of control? I don’t know, I’m asking. What I do know is my photo engraving ability improved by a magnitude.
I have been looking to decorate a wall in my home theater with iconic images of my favorite movies/ actors.The ability to do that to my satisfaction just landed in my lap.
Here is a picture I have wanted as a subject. maple. I did the small one on the right just after I got the glowforge and before the power/speed update. - along side of a bigger, better Josey Wales engraving as I took this picture. Wow!
Just as I was beginning to get a handle on IPM, LPI and power, the playing field changed.
Like many here I was confused and frustrated. Were the established standards not good enough?
No. They weren’t.
Now the picture is coming into focus.(< see what I did there?) Besides pioneering new innovations to the technology and bringing it to a larger audience, The degree of control in the user interface will also be redefined. I am not surprised.
One of the biggest innovations is connectivity. This machine that hasn’t moved an inch from my shop continues to add functionality… behind my back. I never had a tool that grew up in my shop before.
