Loving these new updates! This took 3 hours and 23 minutes to print. I ran it twice for a total of just under 7 hours of print time. Before the update, I would have had to either reduce the lpi or break the image up. I hate doing that. Thanks, Glowforge update people!
That is cool. Is it from a photo you took?
Found the photo online. I wish my camera took photos like this! Lol
Did they push it? I haven’t cut anything yet today…I’ll have to check it out! Awesome!
Yep. Not sure to what, but Ima find out!
That’s a really cool moon! What’s your plan for it?
It will be edge lit behind this:
Both the moon and tree are amazing!
Can you post a pic when you finish that? I have it imagined what it might look like…but I REALLY want to see it! Will be amazing I have no doubt. Wonder what it would be like if you had like red to yellow to white fade in on it… wow I wish I had this kind of creative imagination!!
I will definitely post the finished product!
What update are you referencing? How did the update allow the results you wanted?
Look in the right-hand column of your GF home page – the latest update, which they are rolling out gradually, allows much larger file sizes.
That’s true, but I’ve not heard anyone yet who has said they have the new update available. You will notice that they ran a 3 hr. 23 min. engrave twice. 3.23 hours could very well have fit into the current buffer. I’m curious too…to know if they really did get the new update.
It refused to print this exact image with these settings two weeks ago. It would tell me it was too compmex, and that I could shrink it, change settings, or print in pieces. This time it ran it without a fuss. I assume it was updated.
Looking forward to seeing the combination!
This is amazing! It’s so cool to see what you can push your Glowforge to do.
Awesome. Looking forward to seeing the final piece!
