We have a firmware update that will improve your machine’s ability to connect to our servers. Most printers will update the next time you turn your Glowforge off and on.
And this Tuesday, Dec 3rd at 11:30 PM PST, we have some planned downtime to update our servers with security and reliability improvements. Our site may be unavailable for up to an hour.Read More
When your Glowforge goes to sleep, the lights dim. Sometimes this results in a camera image that’s too dark to see. The next time your Glowforge powers on, it will install an update to ensure that the lights come on before a picture is taken.Read More
Increasing the speed of light: four ways your Glowforge is getting faster (and a loud noise) (10/22/19)
We are really, really excited about this set of latest improvements.
A new beta setting will dramatically increase the top speed your Glowforge can achieve. The top speed of the Glowforge Basic is now 1.4x, the Plus is 2.8x, and the Pro is a whopping 4.2x as fast as before. While your Glowforge won’t always run at top speed, today’s release can make prints go much faster than before. You’ll see the biggest improvements in large engravings. You'll also see your printer head moving much faster when autofocusing or homing.Read More
You can now zoom out to 50% (showing twice as much) and 25% (showing four times as much). The previous limit was 67%. Of course, all the other zoom levels are still available.
We’ve also changed the look of the side buffers that indicate where you can and cannot print. They’ve changed from striped to a solid, transparent grey.Read More
Previously, your prints won’t start if your Glowforge unit is too hot. Now, when your Glowforge is too warm to print, pressing the button will run the fans to help cool things off and print when the temperature drops.
Based on your suggestions, we’ve added a navigation bar to the forum. Now, when you’ve got the answer you need, or inspiration strikes, head right back to your Dashboard and begin printing up a storm!Read More
