New Premium features, vector engrave settings, & catalog designs

Past Prints: now, every version of your design is preserved (Premium only) Three weeks ago we announced Glowforge Premium and some of the new features that were on the docket. This week, we’re launching Past Prints. This feature is like Apple’s Time Machine for your designs, and will save a new version of your design each time you print.

What you’ll get with Past Prints:

  • Date of the print
  • Post-print bed image (if available)
  • Ability to preview and restore the design that was used to make that print
  • Make a copy of the older version so you can keep editing it (unless it’s a catalog design)

With Past Prints, you will be able to see your print history going back to Sept 15, 2020. We’ll preserve all your files and versions forever with your Premium subscription. Now you can experiment with settings and changes without worrying about losing your work!
New vector engrave settings We’re updating the SD Graphic settings for Draftboard, Plywood, Hardwood, and Acrylic. The new settings are for vector engraves only; bitmap engrave settings will stay the same.

Based on feedback we’ve received, we think these settings are a better compromise between speed and quality, and bring the vector engrave settings more closely into line with the bitmap engrave settings.

These new SD Graphic settings will replace the existing settings. The existing ones will be there for at least a week, and labeled with “(Expiring Soon)”. That way, if you’re in the middle of a project and want to preserve the settings you’re using for later, you can open up the SD Graphic engrave settings and click the “+” sign to save them as a custom setting.
New catalog designs You’ll see your home in a different light this week with 2 incredible new designs, created by a talented Glowforge owner just like you. Choose subtle sophistication with this elegant Acrylic Barrel Light or make a centerpiece statement with this Angular Wood Shell Lamp. Or print them both!

These are available for purchase as single print or unlimited print, and are free with your Glowforge Premium membership. They also come with full commercial rights so you can print as many as you want - for yourself, for gifts, or even to sell! You can check out all our recent additions here.
