Watch Me Use A Glowforge

If you’ve been following our Glowforge investment you will be familiar with the pre-order campaign they are currently running. Halfway through (with 15 days to go) they are now at $7.8 million.

Glowforge pre-order 15 days in

Yesterday, Dan Shapiro and I did a video of me creating a Foundry Group coaster out of a piece of wood. It was done remotely – I did all the design work on my computer in Boulder, uploaded it to the Glowforge cloud, and printed it on a Glowforge in Seattle. As a bonus, you get to see a VC (me) struggle with Adobe Illustrator, which – while being ubiquitous – is one of those pieces of software that can only be described as “a beast.”

If you haven’t ordered a Glowforge yet, use my referral code to get 50% off + another $100 dollars off. Given my experience with Dan and team so far, I think this is going to be one of the amazing products of 2016.

  • The contrast between using Illustrator and a cloud-based 3d printing service seems to be a perfect example of the way products then and now!

    This feels similar to your enthusiasm with Sphero Brad, which,, only looks to be good for the future. The product looks terrific! (the “jetpack” for us is dead by the way but fun stuff on the horizon!) We just got a flowlabs, and heavily debating a glowforge (2 for 3)! Congrats it looks amazing!

    Wow! I am hoping the pre-order discount applies to schools. My two children attend private school and I want to help them raise funds to buy several. This is really amazing if it will do all that is being promised.

    Does anyone have a new referral code? I tried all from here and they don’t work, perhaps they have been used already. Thanks!

    I can’t wait to get mine. I want to try it on ceramics I make. I usually slip trail really intricate patterns(like the orange one) but a plain piece like this will be like a blank canvas for the glowforge to engrave I think. They say it can do it on curves, wonder how steep?

    Oh! and please support me and use my referral link and we both get $100 of the already discounted pre-order deal.
