Just a little comment about the value of GlowForge 2.0.
Don’t feel as though a version 2.0 will be that much of a stretch from the product we will receive late this fall. If you think of the initial release date:
Initial beta and then production release (late 2015/1st qtr 2016) = GlowForge V 1.0
First production delay (June 2016) = GlowForge V 1.3
Next promised production date (December 2016) = GlowForge V 1.9
Any notable upgrade/improvements to a V 2.0 will be minimal - perhaps a greater Z depth, a 60W laser, and a better pass thru capability. But the operating software/hardware functions should be in place for the foreseeable future.
Just my opinion. Waiting patiently.
