Frequently Asked Questions

What materials can I use with my Glowforge Spark?

Glowforge Spark fits material up to 12 in x 12 in (30.4 cm x 30.4 cm), but we recommend materials sized at 8 in x 12 in (30.4 cm x 20.32 cm) or smaller to match the cutting bed area and optimize your print experience. Glowforge Spark works with thicker materials than traditional craft cutters — you can cut materials up to ¼ in (0.635 cm) thick and engrave objects up to ¾ in high. It cuts and engraves laser-compatible materials including wood, acrylic, leather, veneer, paper, & cardboard, and also engraves on denim, mylar, rubber, cork, sandpaper, food, stone, slate, titanium, aluminum, marble, ceramic tile, and hundreds more!


Glowforge Spark uses a blue, 6-watt, solid-state diode laser, so it is not compatible with glass, clear acrylic, translucent acrylic, white acrylic, some blue acrylics, PVC vinyl, chromium-based materials, carbon-based materials, PTFE/Teflon-based materials, materials containing beryllium oxide, or Draftboard materials. Learn more about laser-compatible materials here.

How much space will Glowforge Spark take up in my home?

The Glowforge Spark is 21 5/16 in (W) x 19 1/4 in (D) x 5 1/4 in (H) — or about the size of a small desktop printer. It weighs just 10.8 lbs.

How easy is it to get started?

It takes less than 30 minutes to get your printer out of the box, set it up, and finish your first print.

What is the thickest material that Glowforge Spark can cut?

Glowforge Spark can cut materials up to 1/4" thick, and engrave materials up to 3/4" thick with the cutting tray removed.

All Glowforge printers are quick to set up and easy to use. You can choose to work with hundreds of materials to make the kinds of amazing things that you see on our Community Forum or Instagram. All our printers come with everything you need to get started making magical things at the touch of a button.


If you want to make projects at home like paper greeting cards, personalized signs, or acrylic accessories, a Craft Laser — Glowforge Spark or Glowforge Aura — are a perfect fit. If you’re looking for greater material variety, more speed, power, classroom technology for STEAM education, or the ability to create products at scale for business, check out our Performance Series.

How precise is the Glowforge laser?

Glowforge uses a beam of light the width of a human hair to cut and engrave with incredible accuracy to one-thousandth of an inch. It can engrave images in stunning high-resolution comparable to what you see on your phone or computer screen now. Learn more here!

Do I need additional software to print with a Glowforge?

Nope! Every Glowforge laser works with our web-based App, Glowforge Print. You can use your Mac, PC, tablet, or smartphone to design a project completely from scratch right in the App — choose from millions of fonts, graphics, pattern tools, stamp-templates, & more! You can also choose thousands of ready-to-print designs from the Glowforge Catalog and customize them to make your perfect project!
