Frequently Asked Questions

Which Glowforge is right for me?

Great question! Glowforge offers two series of lasers to suit different needs. The Performance Series, including models like Glowforge Pro HD and Glowforge Plus, is ideal for powering businesses, side hustles, or classroom teaching. The Craft Series, with models like Glowforge Aura and Glowforge Spark Craft, caters to crafters and creative enthusiasts seeking compact, easy-to-use lasers. Whichever you choose, setup is quick and within thirty minutes of receiving your Glowforge, you can start creating!

How is Glowforge different from a 3D printer?

Glowforge uses subtractive manufacturing, whereas traditional 3D printers use additive manufacturing. While 3D printers build up material layer by layer, Glowforge carves out products from materials like wood, leather, or acrylic using laser light. Although technically categorized as a CNC laser cutter engraver, we affectionately refer to it as a 3D laser printer.

What can I make with Glowforge?

The possibilities are endless! You can create a wide variety of useful, beautiful, and practical items using materials such as wood, leather, felt, fabric, acrylic, paper, and more.

What kind of software and hardware do I need to use Glowforge?

You can use your Glowforge with ease from a Mac, PC, tablet, or smartphone using our simple, powerful, and free web interface.

Will Glowforge be difficult to set up or learn how to use?

Not at all! Glowforge is incredibly user-friendly. Most customers report less than 30 minutes from unboxing to finishing their first print. With our intuitive web interface and simple hardware (just one button!), you'll be creating in no time. Plus, our detailed manual and abundant resources ensure a smooth learning curve for users of all ages and skill levels.
