Laser superpowers.

Laser superpowers

3D Hi-Res Engraving

Engrave complex, three dimensional curves with 1,000 DPI resolution. To get perfect detail and sculpt with real depth, Glowforge can carve away material with multiple passes for truly detailed and impressive results.

Laser Precision

Your Glowforge motors can control motion to a thousandth of an inch, and the laser can focus down to the width of a human hair. Combined, they can create prints with exquisite detail and precision.

Air Filter upgrade

The unique Glowforge Air Filter lets you put the Glowforge anywhere, no matter what material you're cutting. It snaps right under the Glowforge and makes it just 7" taller. Alternately, you can use your Glowforge near a window with the included duct.

Revolutionary camera system.

Lid Camera Abstract

Live Camera Preview

See your design take shape before you print. Onboard cameras show you a preview of your design on whatever material you choose. Place your design with your mouse or finger and position it exactly where you want.

Design with just a pen

Just use a pen to draw directly onto your materials, and watch your designs transform. From a doodle to a masterpiece, onboard cameras scan and turn your drawing into a real product. Resize, copy or personalize it further - you're just one button away from a beautiful print.

3D Autofocus

Just like a camera, your Glowforge has a fully automatic focusing system to cut and engrave on materials both thick and thin. Before each print, the height is measured with exacting precision to be sure it prints perfectly, every time.

Automatic Setup

Whether you use a thick natural leather or beautiful maple, Proofgrade™ brand materials are automatically recognized by your device. Material settings are instantly configured so you can focus on what matters: your project.

Easy to use.

Set up in minutes

The hardest part of setting up is deciding what to print first. Your Glowforge uses Wi-Fi and a regular outlet, and tutorials make the first prints a snap. Put your Glowforge near a window with the included exhaust hose or add a Glowforge Air Filter to print anywhere.

Compatible

Use the format and system that's best for you. You can work from your Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, and Windows or Linux computer. Design with Inkscape, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, GIMP, Fusion 360, Corel Draw, and more - even PowerPoint or Google Docs! Compatible with JPG, PDF, PNG, and SVG.

Cloud Simplicity

Your Glowforge runs from a web browser, which means there's no software to install - ever. Drag and drop your designs right onto your material. Upgrades are instant and seamless.

Safe for schools

Under FDA regulations, the Glowforge Basic and Glowforge Plus are categorized as Class 1 lasers, like a DVD player, so no special precations are required to use them. The Pro model is a Class 4 device like other lasers, and requires additional precautions.
