Im trying to decide if I should even set my new Glowforge up or if I should just wait until the situation changes…
I physically can not put my new Glowforge in the house. There is just no way. It was a gift from a family member, I wasn’t planning on buying one until I moved next year due to this issue. But now it’s here so… My ONLY option is a shop building outside which gets INCREDIBLY hot in spring (100 plus) & just downright insane during summer (120 is average).
QUESTION 1: Is it safe to run the Glowforge when the ambient temperature is that hot?
Second, its very VERY dusty where I live. Think tsunamis of dirt on everything, it’s beyond ridiculous. There’s absolutely no way I can help this. By placing my Glowforge out in the shop, even if I cover it well, it will be subject to lots of dust/dirt.
QUESTION 2: Is this going to affect it & if so how exactly? Will it be a major problem? Can dust inside the machine cause a major issue? Is there anything that can be done about it? Example, can I just use an air compressor to blow it out before use or is that not a good idea?
