any help! Thanks, David

There is no wifi status light on the machine. If you are trying to perform the initial setup, you hold the button for 10 seconds until it turns teal, then run the setup process following these instructions:


And just to clarify–the button flashes white when your job is ready to print, otherwise it’s not lit except for some warnings and as @elfguy noted, teal after holding for 10 seconds to go thru the setup process.

Thank you @eflyguy and @bansai8creations for your wonderful tips!

If you are still having trouble connecting could you please try the following steps?

  1. Power Up: Turn your Glowforge off. Then turn on your Glowforge and wait until all motion has stopped for 30 seconds.
  2. Start Wi-Fi Setup: Hold down the button on your Glowforge for ten seconds, until it glows with a teal color.
  3. Sign In: Using a Wi-Fi device like your laptop or tablet, go to setup.glowforge.com and sign in.
  4. Connect Your Glowforge to Wi-Fi: Follow the instructions at setup.glowforge.com to connect your Glowforge to Wi-Fi. If you run into trouble along the way, let us know what happened right before the issue arose.
