Print in warmer rooms; dramatic lights

We’ve been collecting tons of feedback from you about the performance of the Glowforge Basic under warm weather conditions. As we investigated, we found a problem that was preventing prints from starting in warm rooms; this update fixes the problem. Since there is a firmware component, it won’t take effect until after your machine is switched off and on again.

We’ve also made a small but neat improvement to the lights: you’ll see them change as you open and close the lid. This helps optimize camera performance and means you won’t be blinded when you open the lid. And we think it looks pretty good, too!

We’ve also made assorted bug fixes, including a significant one that will reduce errors when your network connection is intermittent.
