Weekly Highlights for the Week Ending June 24th, 2017

Official Information:

July Announcement in June! (Wild!)

Does the Filter draw power from the Glowforge?

Does the Glowforge communicate directly with the filter?

Can you switch back and forth from filter to outside venting by removing the U bend and connecting the hose?

Can you use the filter on the same circuit as the Glowforge?

If I wanted to deep engrave with multiple passes, on each pass some material will be removed. Should I adjust the focus on subsequent passes or is it automatic?

What kind of Proofgrade woods are best for 3-D bas-relief engraving?

Can I leave my Glowforge to someone else in my will?

What email addresses should I whitelist to make sure I see the notification about my pending shipment from Glowforge?


Forum Trivia:
June 18th - Happy Cakeday to @dan :dizzy::tada::fireworks::sparkles:
June 22nd - Happy Cakeday to @bailey & @neil :boom::sparkles::dizzy::dolls:

Here on the Discourse forum, your Cakeday is the anniversary of the day you joined the forum, and everyone gets alerted to the fact by a little slice of cake appearing next to your username in all your posts. So if you see one next to someone’s name, wish 'em a Happy Cakeday! (If you see a whole cake, it’s their birthday.)

I get the feeling this one might be a little shy on content. ROFL! :wink:


Bumping this in case anyone would like to add their content from this past week before I de-Wikify it.

Just added a bunch of links for people. Not sure if I got them all. I had a fairly light week.

Edit: I forgot to post my project!
