Glowforge – make whatever you want with this laser “printer”

3D printers are all the rage but laser cutters are cool too. Glowforge is the laser cutter that does it all. This not so little box can make things with a variety of different materials opening your design process up to endless possibilities. If you can only buy one printer, make it this one, because it can do everything.

This is a 3D printer in reverse. Where normal 3D printers build by extruding materials, with this one, you put your material on the workspace and it subtracts by cutting and carving with a laser light. Which is pretty awesome sounding. This printer is can be used in a variety of art, design, and fabrication processes.

It works with both Mac and PC as well as tablets and other mobile devices. You can design with any software you choose or you can draw directly onto the material you’re cutting. This is a very fun machine that makes a variety of really cool things. The basic model is $2,495.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
