Where do I find designs for free/purchase?


#1

just got my Glowforge setup and did my first print (Seattle skyline puzzle)… Glowforge has a few free designs to start with but I want access to more options/designs. Any sites or locations to find designs for free or purchase? I can’t see where to find more in the Glowforge app or on this site? apologies if this has been asked before, I’m a total newbie here and just want to find ready to print designs :slight_smile:

Here are a few I found:

https://www.instructables.com/ with a membership, http://makezine.com/, https://www.vecteezy.com/free-vector/laser-cut, https://www.troteclaser.com/en-us/knowledge/do-it-yourself-samples/, https://www.thingiverse.com/tag:lasercut, https://www.ponoko.com/showroom/product-plans/free, https://www.epiloglaser.com/resources/sample-club.htm, http://www.craftsmanspace.com/free-patterns/laser-cutting-designs.html,

Not all will be set up for GF but most can be altered to work.

Another one is www.thingiverse.com you need to search for “laser cut”. I have a love/hate relationship with that site. A lot of potential but it’s a mess and very difficult to find anything you’re actually looking for.

Hey congratulations on your Glowforge!
There are allot of post in the Free Laser Designs category from community members.

Also there are allot of sites that give away free designs. I recommend searching the forums a little bit.

Here is one I found when I searched.

Happy Forging

I’d start with the Free Shared Designs Category here on the forum.

But there is also this as an excellent source of all kinds of vector files for cutting:
