Save/Favorite Design

I’m sure I’m not the first one to suggest this, but is there a way to “favorite” or “save” a specific design in the library so I won’t have to scroll through the entire library to find an old design?

That would be great if there was that feature.

No, but you could upload another iteration of it and it will appear at the top… :roll_eyes::unamused:

Or choose duplicate. That also tops it.


Cool, I didn’t know that. :+1:

Yeah it also pulls the settings forward, which can save you some setup.


It would definitely be cool to pin a half dozen designs :slight_smile:


There’s a good suggestion for the hopper, be able to pin/unpin designs.
Or give us a folder… :thinking:


Or rename it


True, but I do have a handful of designs I use all the time. If I kept uploading, renaming, or duplicating, there would still be a lot to go through. I was wondering if I had missed the whole “save”/“pin” feature.

Thanks for your input, guys!

We’ve been asking for this for a loooong time. We can only hope they decide to make some progress on this front.

I’d really love to see a much more robust system for storing files. Folders/tags. Recently used file list. Notes attached to each file for settings, process steps etc.


We really do need folders :pleading_face::pleading_face::pleading_face::pleading_face::pleading_face:


I wonder about clutter?
I periodically have gone through and eliminated a lot of the App stored files myself. Old house keeping habit from when we did not have hard drives that were a bazillion gazillion bytes large.

Just for giggles, I just examined my Glowforge folder.
1,719 folders and 15,973 files.
Now, there are a lot of files in there that were iterations leading up to a final design, but it still piles up over time.
I have a few file naming tricks I have become accustomed to and there is almost always a FINAL folder for complex designs. A few folders also have text files in them if I did not elect to put specific parameters into the file design itself.

Long story short, even with folders, it could get rather bulky. Even now, when I go to remake something, I have found myself scrolling the directory list, while trying to remember what exactly I called the design.

All that said, it would still be a great idea to have folders for the designs we KNOW will be replicated and have set up final parameters for. Just do a fast COPY and off you go (if you remember that you saved it in there - lol).


And still naming files at 8 letters? When I get a working copy and hope to use it again I I leave it in place and when I did not do so for a reason I have not discovered a long run of fingers could not be precisely repeated and made a mess of the project and I now have pieces that the teeth don’t match anything.

I can understand that. But seeing that they in a way are forcing us to upload our design, they should give us some sort of organization, even if it it limited. I only keep thing uploaded if they are the final design, but I still have my most used files I would like to keep at the top.
