Remove glass from glowforge

Hey, search is letting me down, or pointing me to the now-defunct openglow pages.

Does any one know of a post or have pics of the glass lid clips on the GF case? Asking for @Deleted, he asked what the silver stickers were inside the lid, I know they’re tamper-evident stickers, but can’t find pics of the clips and how to remove them. Anyone got it?

Hmm, you can make a few inferences here:

If you look closely at the you can see where the clips snap into the case. They’re little “ramps” on the left side.

the thing on the left, is that where you put the transmission fluid?

:stuck_out_tongue:

Oil change every 3,000 cuts.

Seriously, thought: In a pro there is a coolant fluid reservoir over there, and the molded screw holes are where you affix the heat exchanger, right in front of the fan.

I just pie in it from time to time

is there a way to remove the cover without removing the internal silver stickers?
I’ve seen someone has a tool.

Thanks!
