I know I’m late to the party, but I wanted to add my voice to this request. I’m unfamiliar with CNC lasers, which is why I’m so excited about the user friendly promise of the glowforge.
I have maybe a dozen 3D models that I’ve created in Sketchup that I’m hoping to cut, but I’m not sure how to prepare them for the GF. I figured I’d upload the 2D version into AutoCAD, but I don’t know how to indicate cut depth for those areas that I plan to create deep engraving/shallow cutting - for example, if I want to create a lip at the top of a piece of 1/4 wood that is 1/8 inch deep, easy to see in 3D, but how I would indicate that in a 2D model that GF could read? I would love to be more familiar with the grey-scale method that I’m reading about and how to implement it before I get my machine.
Did I mention HOW EXCITED I am to get my GF?!
