    Glow Forge

    Whats going on with Glowforge I see they are still in business. The customers are still happy and nothing burnt down yet? They are getting nearly $6000 for the 45 watt deluxe model.

    I see there have been a few fires but not as many as I would have thought. People are trying to run businesses with them but complain about long waits while they calibrate. still can't engrave thick items

    IMO: --- Glowforge, in all its (ahem) glory and well-deserved infamy, makes 2 strong points:

    1- Advertising does work--

    2- You CAN polish a turd...

    Most of them are for the same problem but they close the thread before the the question is answered with the mod saying we know and will let you know what to do.

    After seeing all the problems with connection you would think someone would either hack the controller or replace it with one that doesn't need wifi to operate.

    Don't forget you saw it all predicted here years ago. I forgot now but someone said we were all wrong, and it was going to be a great success.

    But it was a great success Bill - the founders made a boatload of money and couldn't be happier!
