My First GF Project

I finally got my Glowforge Pro earlier this week and finally had some time to set it up.

Of course, my first test project was to engrave a skull.

At first, the GF said it was too complicated, so I shrunk it a bit and then the GF was OK with it.

I still have a lot to learn as I wasn’t sure what the different type of engrave sources meant (SD Graphic, HD Graphic, etc.) and have plans for much larger engraves, so I’ll have to read up on how best to break them apart to allow for complex engravings.

How do folks typically treat engravings afterward? Is there a typical treatment or just whatever you want? Stain, lacquer, etc.

Looking forward to being a more active member here!
