Pause Button

Maybe a silly question, but is there a pause button? I’ve started some engravings that take an hour +, I would like to walk away, but I want to pause when I am not in the same room with the machine. Is this possible?


Sure, just push the button on top of the glowforge to pause, push it again to resume.


Ha, easy enough. Thanks so much @johnj !

This is covered in the owners manual. It might be worth reading it.

It also warns about leaving the machine unattended while it is paused, as it could accidentally restart.
