Glowforge printer

There are a few times in your life where you look at a product information video and have your mouth hanging open afterwards at the immense technology you have just witnessed.

Glowforge is a crowdfunded success story which has launched a 3D Laser printer and when I say “laser” I actually mean laser. This product uses an actual laser to cut, engrave and shape from a numerous amounts of materials such as wood, leather, acrylic, fabric, cardboard, paper and dozens more materials.

Now you can literally make any design on Photoshop and send it directly to the printer with the material you selected. The printer will then analyze the material, automatically adjust itself and cut the design for you. It can even engrave designs on laptops.

Of course for technology like that, you need about R 40 000.00 laying around and will have to import it as well from America, but seriously though… How cool would it be if you could do all of that? Even the most non-creative person would go: “I think I can make something with that!”

Just look at what this machine can do…

Trink… We lead the way.
