Improved accelerometers

We are starting to roll out an improvement to the way the software uses the sensors that detect movement. If there’s a bump, your machine may now cancel (during the focusing step) or pause (during the print). This could occur, for example, if there’s an obstruction in the bed or if the Glowforge unit is jostled.

This feature is new and is not yet rolled out to all machines. While it’s a helpful fallback in case of a mishap, make sure to always follow the user manual. If you find any problems or if you find it useful and want to let us know, please let us know at support@glowforge.com or in the Problems & Support section of the forum.
