I’d like to present a totally hypothetical situation that has implications on warranty coverage. Let’s say I go to a Glowforge recommended material supplier and purchase a material that’s safe for use in the Glowforge (ie. an inventables acrylic). When I print a design I get a dialog box that says if any damage occurs by using this material, the damage is not covered under warranty. Assume I only used a non-Proofgrade material once, and that printed fine and the machine continued to cut with no issues. Now let’s say at a later point I need to send it in for warranty repair.
Since I used a non-Proofgrade material, did I risk my repair not being covered under warranty?
How do you determine which parts of the machine are damaged by using non-Proofgrade material?
I get scared by that dialog and don’t want to accidentally damage it and I definitely don’t want to use the machine in a manner that will not be covered under warranty.
I’d love to print on materials like the ones shown in the promo video but as of yet there are no Proofgrade versions of those materials (ie. cardboard globe). Is printing on any materials other than Proofgrade essentially at-your-own-risk?
