Is anyone out there having the same problems with the new proof grade plywood materials the wood seems more brittle especially when engraving ,the plywood feels a lot cheaper now, very disappointed with the quality of the wood grain as well. I would of been more cautious if I had known glowforge had changed their plywood. Very Curious if other people are having the same problems and if there is any workarounds I just bought 250$ dollars worth, and feel very disheartened. Hopefully the other sheets do a lil better, I will post some pictures soon to show exactly what I am talking about. Any comments are input on this matter is much appreciated.
I recently bought some pg ply and haven’t notice a big difference from my last order (which was fairly recent as well).
Posting in this section opens a support ticket, so why don’t you post some photos that show the problem, so support will have something to work with when they get here?
Oh i didn’t know it opened a ticket i will show a comparison of two of the exact files on the new and old plywood.
Hello @parga32! Proofgrade hardwoods and plywoods are natural products, so each board is endowed with a distinctive pattern and grain all its own, and no two boards are alike. However, it sounds like you have some concerns.
I just went ahead and sent you an email to collect photos and take a look at the Proofgrade you received, so I’m going to close this topic.
Thank you for reaching out.
