The iconic 3D Laser Printer
Make magical things at the push of a button.
The camera shows the actual material inside of your Glowforge so you can drag around your design with your mouse or finger. Position it wherever it looks best and see what it will look like before you hit print.
You can skip the design software. From a doodle to a masterpiece, onboard cameras scan and transform your drawing. Resize, copy, or personalize - you’re just one button away from a beautiful print.
Proofgrade® brand materials are automatically recognized by your Glowforge. Material settings are instantly configured so you can focus on your project.
Just like a camera, your Glowforge has a fully automatic focusing system to cut and engrave on materials both thick and thin. Before each print, the height is measured with exacting precision to be sure it prints perfectly, every time.
Personalized designer jewelry. The perfect shoulder bag. Lighting, housewares, art, party goods, and furniture. The Glowforge catalog lets you buy & print intricate, beautiful designs that you may not have the time or experience to create yourself.
Your Glowforge uses Wi-Fi and a regular outlet so setup is easy. Tutorials make the first three prints a snap. Ventilate out a window or add a Glowforge Air Filter to print anywhere.
Engrave complex, three dimensional curves with 1,000 DPI resolution. To get perfect detail and sculpt with real depth, Glowforge can carve away material with multiple passes for truly detailed and impressive results.
Work from your Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, and Windows or Linux computer. Design with Inkscape, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, GIMP, Fusion 360, Corel Draw, and more. Compatible with JPG, PDF, PNG, and SVG.
Your Glowforge runs from a web browser, which means there’s no software to install - ever. Drag and drop your designs right onto your material. Upgrades are instant and seamless.
Your Glowforge motors can control motion to a thousandth of an inch, and the laser can focus down to the width of a human hair. Combined, they can create prints with exquisite detail and precision.
Under FDA regulations, Glowforge Basic is categorized as a Class 1 laser, like a DVD player, so no special precautions are required to use it. The Pro model is Class 4 device like other lasers, and requires additional precautions.
The unique Glowforge Air Filter lets you put the Glowforge anywhere, no matter what material you’re cutting. It snaps right under the Glowforge and makes it just 7" taller. Alternately, you can use the Basic model near a window with the included duct.
