Introducing: Magic Canvas

Have an amazing idea, but not entirely sure how to make it come to life? When you use Magic Canvas, exclusive to Glowforge Premium, you can translate that idea in your mind into something incredible.

New adjust artwork tools

Sharp, high-contrast images are perfect for spectacular engravings and Premium members can now make these adjustments to your artwork - directly in the Glowforge app.

Get monthly featured designs with one-click

Monthly featured designs are free for Premium members and, if you get them during their featured month, you get to keep them forever. You can now add them to your dashboard with one-click, without the need to checkout from The Catalog!

A New App Dashboard & Smart Folders

New App Dashboard

When you log into, you’ll see an updated homepage to help you make the most of your Glowforge. From here, you can easily access your most recent designs, discover new and popular Catalog designs, tutorials, and more.

Smart Folders

Perhaps our most often requested feature! Smart Folders help you organize everything you can print.

You can organize your projects however you want, even adding the same design to more than one smart folder. (For example, you may create an ornament and add it to the “Celebration & Events” smart folder, but also put it in the “Print before December” smart folder to make sure you don’t forget it!)

One question survey

One question survey

We’re trying something new! As a way to understand how we’re doing with all of our customers, we’re going to occasionally present this one-question survey at the start of your printing day. It’s a big deal if you get it - less than 1% of our customers get this chance to provide feedback! We’d consider it a big favor if you’d share your opinion.

Multipart Catalog design improvements

We’ve made it easier for you to manage and print Catalog designs with multiple parts such as this Fantasy Airship, Keepsake Jewelry Box with Slide-out Drawers, or the Mid-century Modern Rambler Organizer. We heard lots of feedback that it was hard to find multiple parts of catalog designs, and this should make it a snap.

Browse Catalog with new categories

Thanks to talented creators like yourselves, the Glowforge Catalog now features thousands of designs. With new, updated categories for all these designs, it’s now easier than ever to find the perfect design for your next print.

Fix for blank designs

Thanks to your feedback, we found and fixed a bug that was causing some designs to show up blank.
