This is really interesting. I know nothing about UV printing, so this was pretty enlightening.
My Glowforge is purely a personal use/hobby machine, but when I got it I started seeing what other equipment is used for customizing, sign making, etc. I’d love to have a UV printer but they’re so damned expensive. Especially for something I’d use twice a year.
I saw the original YouTube video of this and thought, I bought a laser, maybe I could get one of these. I was sad to find out they’re much more expensive than what glowforge offers
In other words, Glowforge should jump on the cheaper hobby UV printers wink wink
I’m working on the wiring for my MPCNC today. I sure could have used their wire harness tools.
Reminds me of laser cutters before they became affordable for hobbyists (thanks GF!). Would love to have one of these some day – would be a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing!
So cool! Please help me convince @dan that we should add a UV printer to our lineup because I’d love to design a desktop one!
Shoot, I was hoping one was already in the works!
I was thinking a finishing head for the glowforge to turn it into a spray booth as my spray booth is the outside: too cold, too hot, too humid, raining, random bits of flora and fauna landing in the paint/poly. But your idea would work too.
