Today I want us to leave the world of 3D printing for a moment, although not abandon it but look at it from another perspective, precisely from the one it offers us Glowforge, a laser cutter capable of working with many elements, without a doubt, a new solution, either for those who still do not dare to take the step into the world of 3D printing or directly for all those who want to expand their possibilities.
As you can see in the video that is just below these lines, with Glowforge the work is completely the opposite of what is usually done with a 3D printer, that is, while with the printer figures and objects of different materials are created layer by layer, this time what is done is to introduce a block of a specific material, for example cardboard, food, aluminum ... to, after being identified by the cutter, proceed to modeling.
Among the most interesting features of Glowforge we find, for example, details such as the ease of connection and configuration, something that surely all users who decide to get hold of a unit will appreciate being able to send any type of document to be processed from a mobile application, automatic material detection or the possibility of being able to make very precise cuts, something that, as I said before, makes it one of the most interesting and desired items for any lover of 3D printing.
If you are interested in getting a Glowforge unit, the price of it is U.S. dollar 1.995 for the most basic version while for all those who seek to work more professionally there is the version equipped with an air filter for U.S. dollar 2.495 or a more professional one offered by U.S. dollar 3.995. Before saying goodbye to tell you that today, although the prices seem relatively high, they are half their usual price since the Glowforge is in launch promotion.
