- Saved Preprocessed Jobs - Lets you choose certain jobs you do often, and replay them without the server render time. This would have a number of benefits:
- 0 waiting time for the user doing the job.
- Largely reduce rendering time for others, as these repetitive jobs arent clogging up the queue
- Potential ability to use the glowforge offline if those jobs were storable locally (questionable, but possible)
File Organization - After a few years of use, this has become a nightmare. Please let us organize our files
Numeric Inputs/Readouts for resizing objects in the GFUI - This is a really simple one. The logic already exists in your code, just add some boxes to let us type in width/height or position. It would make so many things so much easier
Reflect/Invert Tools - Reflect for those times when you need to engrave something on acrylic instead of wood etc, and invert for raster graphics, usually for the same reason. Maybe just call it acrylic mode. Doesnt matter. We needs it
Add notes to files in the glowforge interface - I like to store information on each file. It would be great to be able to keep it WITH that file, instead of elsewhere and have to go look it up
File Reset - Restore the file you have to the original uploaded version in the case that things happen which cant be undone. Glowforge stores the original version of the file, and when you open it, loads it, then applies all the changes youve done to it (or maybe just the last state of the file). It would be trivial for them to remove all state updates on a per file basis to give you back what you originally uploaded.
I would say these are my top wants, in order, and would make everyone’s lives much easier when using the Glowforge. What say you @Dan and staff? Are these doable? Are they maybe already in testing? Im pretty sure I can vouch for most of the people on this forum, that these would be a major boon.
Id love to hear if everyone else here agrees
