#1

From your FAQ:

" This varies by material, but Glowforge can cut most 1/4"
plywood and acrylic on one side."

Does this apply to GF Pro? or to Basic too?

" You can make this twice as thick by reversing and cutting from both sides with optical alignment. "

Can you expand on the “optical alignment” thing?

Thanks!


Can the GF Make holes/cavities that are 3/8 in deep in a 1/2 in or 3/4 in solid pine wood board?

This applies to both basic and pro. The lid cam identifies the corners of the material and sends the head cam over to measure them precisely. You flip it on the longitudinal axis. The process repeats, and the new cut is mirrored and aligned with the old one.
