Using Your Glowforge Pro

Printing on your Glowforge Pro

  • Laser Safety

    Be sure to review Laser Safety before operating your Glowforge Pro.

  • Moving Material Through the Passthrough Slot

    • Your material must move from front to back.
    • If your material is long enough to stick out either end, make sure that you support it so that it the part inside your Glowforge stays flat on the crumb tray.
    • If you’ve made a lot of cuts, it can help to open the lid and remove the pieces before you slide your material along. (A little tape can work wonders here to help you extract little pieces that are hard to pick up otherwise.)
    • When you’re moving your material, It’s ok to pull it from the back, and you can pull hard if you need to!
    • As you slide your material, you may need to adjust your supports -- make sure that your material continues to lie flat on the crumb tray.
