Videos and Communities
The Atlanta Maker Glowforge Videos – Of course, we are a bit biased and love the videos we’ve made about the Glowforge. Check them out and consider subscribing to our Youtube channel!
Glowforge Official Community – This is the official community run by the company that makes the Glowforge. Tons of great support there along with free laser files and guidance.
Glowforge Users Group (GUG) Facebook – One of the first places I found while researching purchasing the laser. A very supportive community for all things Glowforge and lasers.
