Always dreamt of engraving your own sushi? Maybe not, but the Glowforge printer can do a stack of other things from personalising your laptop to etching a wallet, all by using a laser beam the width of a human hair. Unlike the additive plastic melting 3D printers we’ve seen in the past, the Glowforge design works by burning to your desired shape, precisely cutting or embossing materials, which can then be put together to create works of art. Inside this seemingly regular inkjet lookalike is a 45-watt laser that accurately burns through a quarter inch of plywood or acrylic which is perfectly safe to use with food, and is totally beginner friendly. Start saving.
