Frequently Asked Questions

Which Glowforge is right for me?

Great question! Every Glowforge laser is easy to set up and comes with everything you need to get started creating with hundreds of materials on Day 1. There are 2 series of Glowforge lasers: 

  • Our Performance Series is for people who want our fastest, most powerful lasers whether it's for a powering business, starting a side hustle, or teaching in the classroom. It includes Glowforge Pro HD (our fastest laser ever!), Glowforge Pro, Glowforge Plus HD, and Glowforge Plus lasers.

Whichever Glowforge laser you choose, it’ll be easy, fast, and fun to get started: within thirty minutes of receiving your Glowforge, you can be holding your first finished print! Here are some more details to help you make the right choice for you!

How is Glowforge different from a 3D printer?

Glowforge uses subtractive manufacturing while traditional 3D printers use additive manufacturing. A 3D printer builds up material, like plastic filament, layer by layer. With Glowforge, you’ll put a piece of material like leather, wood, or acrylic in the machine and it carves out your product using laser light. The technical name for the category of tools that includes Glowforge is a CNC laser cutter engraver, but that's a mouthful, so we call it a 3D laser printer.

What can I make with Glowforge?

You can make an endless variety of useful, beautiful, and practical things from a bunch of different materials like wood, leather, felt, fabric, acrylic, paper, and more. See what amazing things other Glowforge owners are making over on Instagram, #glowforge.

What kind of software and hardware do I need to use Glowforge?

Great news! You can use your Glowforge from a Mac, PC, tablet, and smartphone, using our simple, powerful, and free web interface.
