Glowforge has launched its much-anticipated line of 3D laser printers, giving creators, families, and small businesses the ability to bring their ideas to life at the push of a button. The home laser creates beautiful and useful products from various materials including fabric. In 2015, Glowforge had set a 30-day crowdfunding record of more than $27,900,000.

Glowforge has freed laser cutting and engraving technology from the factory and made it easy and affordable for home and small business use. It also offers a line of Proofgrade materials digitally encoded so Glowforge printers can recognise them and auto-adjust to print perfectly each time.

“From the very start, we designed the Glowforge 3D laser printer to unlock people’s creativity,” said Dan Shapiro, CEO of Glowforge. “We set out to re-invent the idea of ‘homemade.’ What if you could print what you wanted, when you needed it? What if you could sketch a design, then turn it into something real you could use, without complicated software? What if your gifts were personal instead of purchased? What if it was easy to print your ideas a hundred times, so you could launch a business?”

Glowforge sets up in just minutes and works via Wi-Fi. No software is required, as it uses the web browser or app on any Mac, PC, tablet, and smartphone. Users can create and print from software including Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Autodesk 360, and Sketchup. They can also bypass software altogether – the onboard cameras can scan a drawing and transform it directly into a beautiful print on almost any material. (KD)
