Hey dan, or glowforge staff
I am stoked about getting my glowforge but disappointed about the email that I will get another email in December to see if it will ship then.
But this post is about the filter. Originally when I ordered my gf I was excited out not having to vent it to the outside. When we started getting delay notices we were appeased by offerings of freebies. And that was great. I certainly could wait for the best machine I could get. It wasn’t until later that we were notified that the filters were being delayed a few months. I know we have always been told that we could hold off on getting the gf until the filters are shipping. I had thought of having them hold my gf till I could get the filter but now it’s a 5 month at least delay between my expected delivery notice of my gf and my filter. Am I not the only one who thinks dan and his crew should also ease the pain on this?
I want my gf as soon as possible and don’t want to wait but I think glowforge should offer some perks here as well. I have never had a laser and only used one twice.I don’t know how to vent this out my window. I will have to hire someone to do this as all my tools are at a maker space. Could gf subsidize the duct work, the piece that goes in the window and I don’t know what else is involved. Are there even instructions on how I would accomplish this.
Just me venting and I hope someone will reply with an answer that is NOT you can always cancel you order.
