Got ‘the email’ 9 days ago. Got the proofgrade stuff yesterday. Now the waiting has a whole different feel to it. My wife is even getting antsy, and that never happens.
Built a bench for it. Cleaned the room where it will go. Nothing left to do but keep checking to see if I have a shipment not. Ever try and not think about something, but then that makes it so its all you can think about?
I’m really new to the CAD software so have been trying to get as much information as I can. Youtube videos and just practicing in the applications. Mine will be here on the 28th, my golden email was the 5th.
Start a table-top game of Risk. (Not an electronic version. They go too quickly for this.) By the time you’re finished, your Glowforge will be there. Since Risk is awesome, you might not want to stop playing just to play with your Glowforge. It’ll be a tough decision. I hope you make the right one.
Ahh Risk… we used to play while waiting for our shift on motorpool guard. We used “nuclear rules” with chances of nuclear accident as well… and when someone would launch a nuke attack the attacker would walk over, kick the guard shack door open, and a loud “BA-BOOM!” Would echo through the motorpool… ahh good times…
Excandesco is online! Really fast to set this up. 30 to 45 Min from when the box arrived until it was all configured. Did two test cuts…the founders ruler and the little measuring key chain. So cool I forgot to get pics!
Next up I am thinking of designing a plywood box for some tools I have. Unless I can’t wait that long…Then I will try another free something.
