So it begins. Also known as Hi all!

Well , bought time for me to stop the lurk. As I have received My shiny new friend.

Inspection crew making sure all was in place. and nothing was going to eat our food.

The box took one hell of a beating on the way here. Missing 3 of the 4 handle locks and one end was a bit flappy. All said though the Glowforge came through in perfect condition. Nice work on the packing design!

I have yet to provide a name and am open to suggestions if there are any. Once I have good name in place the escutcheon will be a fast follow.

I have run the customary first print for all .

As well as played with mixing and matching some things.

So far though it is the greebly bits That I find the most fun in. :blush:

So thus concludes the "Hi all! " post, and begins the neat stuff incoming warning. :smile:
(editors note: I am a slow poster :smiley: )

That is all for now!


Congratulations! Off to an excellent start!

Hey, great! Glad to see your assistant helped you set up; those are some intriguing first projects.


Great! :sunglasses:
Yeah, those little pieces are a good reason why we need to save the scraps!

Congratulations on getting the cat.
Not sure I’d call him shiny. (Unless we’re talking about the Firefly usage of the word.) But I’m sure a good friend. :wink:

Oh, cool Glowforge, too.


Hooray! Yes…now the real fun begins. I share in your enthusiasm and look forward to seeing lots of cool things that you make!

Great news! (will i be next? will i be next? will i be next?..)


Congratulations! How long did it take you to get yours from shipping e-mail to UPS at the door? Just wondering as I got my e-mail on Friday.

no real idea honestly, though it was not to long wait.

I am also a master at going from "YAY!!! I got my e-mail ! " to “Ehh? yeah got an email. Umm couple days/weeks ago. I dunno.” :smiley:



Ahhhhhhhhh… I am obsessively checking my e-mails, and have saved everything they have sent me in the last 2 years. Just wondered how long I have to wait yet.
Now that it seems within my reach it almost is harder to be patient. :o)

Probably 2-4 weeks. If you live in northern CA you may receive your glowforge before your we’ve shipped it email. If you live east of the Mississippi you have a week in transit.

Thanks were in Wisconsin so probably a few weeks yet.

Congrats! and looking good!

I love that Glowforge customers’ “garbage” is more interesting than most people’s actual projects. This is delightful - welcome and congratulations!!!
