Grey Lee, 10, from Brooklyn, waits to laser cut his smiley face at the Glowforge booth at World Maker Faire New York.

Glowforge, the new “3D Laser Printer” that launched Thursday at MakerCon, is now open to the public at  World Maker Faire New York, which is being held Saturday and Sunday, September 26 and 27, on the grounds of the New York Hall of Science, in Queens, New York City.

For the first time, people are interacting with the machine and getting a close-up view of how it works. Visitors to the Glowforge booth at Maker Faire are able to draw on a square of acrylic and watch as the laser cuts and engraves over their drawings to make a keepsake they can take with them.

Grey Lee, 10, from Brooklyn, was one of the first to try the device.

“We read about it, so it was on our list,” his dad said.

Three Glowforges will be humming all weekend at World Maker Faire New York. Attendees will find them in the Maker Pavilion, in Zone 3. Booth #3113.

  2. Plenty of people were convincee after reading this article. I also watched an excellent video by TESTED about the glowforge. You can see it in action there! Looks very promising and easy to use. So I ordered one too. I used referral link I found here and now I share mine: if you too want 100$ extra discount on the launching price go via this link and order: http://glowforge.com/referred/?kid=Z66XgC I think you only see the discount when you start filling in your details.

      1. Hi Edwin, thanks for using my referral link! But did you get that 100$ discount? Because it seems that I didn’t get a referral bonus from Glowforge for your order… I had problems too when first trying to use someone’s friend referral link.

        1. Eveline,

          Yes I did get $100 off and your name even came up on the order page. Additionally I saw your comment on the glowforge discussion section on their website and commented there to hopefully get your your money ;). If you reach your max bonus…maybe you can change your link to my link ?? :):)

          P.S. I don’t think we will get the discount till the item ships, BUT there is a meter when you sign in to the website to track progress.

          again my link is: http://glowforge.com/referred/?kid=5gyrCh . shoot me a post if you use my link so i can kep track. thank you!

  3. Please note that self-promotional comments such as advertisements for referral links will be deleted.

  4. my concern is plastic case. I will be honest….I wouldn’t sleep well wondering if I will burn my house down.
