Possibly one of the fan blades on your exhaust fan has broken in the back left of the machine?

i will see thank you

Something (dust/debris) might be caught in your wheels/belts/tracks - with the machine off move everything around and see if you can figure out where it’s grinding - then clean that area fully!

If you can record a video and upload it to YouTube/Vimeo/etc. and then post the link here it would help.

ok thank you

Hello there @luluburghol - as others have mentioned, often a printer being very noisy during print is due to something with the fan.

If possible, I’d like to grab a photo of your exhaust fan to review.

To capture this photo:

  1. Turn your Glowforge off
  2. Open the lid
  3. Using both hands, gently pull the printer arm towards you as shown below:
  4. Move your phone or camera inside the Glowforge on the left-hand side, past the metal rail, pointed away from you towards the exhaust hose, to capture a photo like the one below:
  • The exhaust connection on the back of your Glowforge, with the exhaust hose removed:


Mine once developed a hard vibration, a good cleaning of the fan solved it.
