April Status Update

Hello Glowforge - Episode 1

What about keeping a list of successful print settings?

Is there a range of hours that defines “heavy use” for the machine?

Is there a problem using a different power cord for the machine? (It causes a problem with cutters.)

Does the filter require space behind it for breathing room?

How does the filter connect to the Glowforge?

What kind of Customer Support is Glowforge going to offer?

https://community.glowforge.com/t/support-launch/6810/32?u=jules

Why do we have a place to enter the material thickness for focus in the machine if the machine is auto-focusing?

Is the Proofgrade Store open yet?

Chadmart1076 wants a pony. (so does jules)
