I kick started this bad boy last year and still waiting for a confirmed release date. I made a video giving my impression upon initial glace of their webpage www.Glowforge.com. I personally can not wait till I get my hands on it because I have a ton of ideas on how to use it. For example, wallets with my logo on it or clothing.
What really sold me was the ability to design items free hand or via photoshop with the glowforge and if you know me, I love designing things.
When I first ordered it, the prospected release was early 2017 but due to some hiccups the company had to push their release date to the end of 2017. I am a tad disappointed but at the same time I am glad because it shows the company cares about releasing a quality product. Like most products and projects, perfection takes time and patience and I guess I will have to wait longer than anticipated for this marvelous machine.
