Are there going to be any software functions available to pro users which are not available to basic users?
Obviously basic users won’t have pass through functionality, however I would still expect to see all the other registration related functions - resuming a cut after the piece has been moved, unrolling a piece of leather to cut something wider than the bed, etc. I remember this being explicitly stated as a feature available to basic users in a tested interview, and is part of what convinced me to buy a Glowforge, although I will have to find the link when I am home rather than on my phone.
The tech specs page enumerates the “Pro Upgrade” improvements and software features are conspicuously absent. In previous interviews the Pro improvements have been described as better hardware with a higher duty cycle, and software differences have never been mentioned. Never the less, it would be nice to get confirmation of this
If there are going to be software differences between the Pro and Basic, please state explicitly what Basic users will miss out on before shipping starts
