No matter your skill level, it’s easy to bring your designs to life. Use the software you know. Glowforge is compatible with everything from PowerPoint to Adobe Illustrator to high-end CAD software. Or, just use a pen. Onboard cameras will scan your drawing and turn it into a digital file you can print, once or a hundred times.
You can use hundreds of materials with your Glowforge, including wood, leather, fabric, cardboard, acrylic, and even chocolate. Our app makes it easy to preview your design on the material and position it exactly where you want it. When you’re ready, hit print and watch your Glowforge go.
See your finished print in minutes, then customize or assemble your work. All that’s left to decide is if you’re going to gift it, keep it, or even launch your own creative business by selling it! We can’t wait to see what you create.

Lasers - including Glowforge - require ventilation. All Glowforge printers come with 4” diameter (10.2cm) hose which allows you to ventilate to the outdoors, for example through a window or dryer vent.
Our Air Filter is an upgrade to eliminate the need for outside ventilation. This sits directly under Glowforge and ventilates using fine particulate filters and charcoal - allowing you to operate your Glowforge from anywhere!
