I have not slept since my Glowforge delivered. All I have done is work on Inkscape and run from my computer to the Glowforge. I started out making miniature versions of games I know and love. With each project I challenge myself more: moving parts, gears, things that must fit and work together. Feeling pretty good about it.
I had a lot of fears about whether or not it would be a good fit for me. I work a lot with my hands. Not really into computer process. After I got a feel for drawing with Bezier curves, I now can say I LOVE Inkscape and enjoy laying out my cut paths with it. The projects still feel organic since I have to put the pieces all together by hand, reprint any pieces that didn’t work out the first time. So far so good.
I feel confidant in my purchase of my Glowforge now that I have actually played around with it for a few days. If you are curious about laser cutting, check out the Glowforge by using this referral link that automatically saves you a ton of $ if you decide to purchase.
