I flew in this evening and promptly setup my Glowforge. A few things I noted.
The setup instructions-So the first thing you are supposed to do is go to app.glowforge.com and start there right? Umm wheres the link there to the setup/unboxing instuctions? Oh, no. That’s in an e-mail you got a while back, or available after you set it up. No problem. Watched a youtube video on unboxing it instead.
I had issues connecting to my regular wifi, so I had to connect it to my guest wifi network. An ethernet jack would be handy.
I had signed in as a guest on another users glowforge, This may be why the setup skipped the part where you name your glowforge. Sent an e-mail to Support to have them name my forge.
Printed the traditional founders ruler fine.
Headbanged on calibration after that print, reset head and restarted unit.
Load my first design, a town seal. I find it has conveniently split the engrave and Cut areas. There are 2 areas of engrave though, the vector components and the raster. Can’t seem to find a way to combine the engrave operations into one, so it needs to engrave the job twice.
Got more than one “Unable to process” errors with no idea what they mean.
Engrave is slow. I hope I’m doing something wrong. The head seems to lazily sweep back and fourth, regardless of settings.
I did get a job to print. I need to play with settings because the part I got out wasn’t as good or as quick as my K40, and I know this unit will do better.
