Chat while you print; Aura in stock (for the moment)

Instant help from our team, instant conversation with the community – while you print

We’ve made it even easier to connect with other Glowforge owners while you’re printing: now you can chat directly from the Glowforge App! Just hit print and ask questions, share ideas and tips, and get connected with your fellow creators.

Bringing Glowforge Aura to your door

If you know someone who’s looking to purchase a Glowforge Aura, then you’ve probably heard their frustration - Michaels and Joann stores are selling out around the country. We’re shipping stock as fast as we can, but it’s been hard keeping up! Well, good news - now folks can order their own Glowforge Aura directly from Glowforge.

Thick Plywood on Aura; fixes for Catalog and Community Chat

We’ve added Proofgrade settings for Thick Plywoods in the app for Aura customers. These include Thick Basswood, Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. If you’re printing on an Aura, you can now choose from standard Proofgrade cuts, scores, or engraves for your design, and these standard settings will be automatically applied to your print.

Thanks to your feedback, we were able to identify and resolve an issue related to the All Designs and Free with Premium pages in the Glowforge Catalog. These are updated and you can continue to add or buy any designs from those pages. Additionally, we resolved an issue with Community Chat where customers were unable to verify their Glowforge account.

When editing your design, you should see a smoother and more responsive experience (up to 2 times faster in responding to your key/touch/mouse), especially if your design contains lots of parts.

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!)
