Moving your Glowforge Aura

Whether it’s for a big move, taking your Glowforge Aura to an event, or for a warranty repair, you’ll need to package your printer properly with the original boxes, cardboard blocks, and foam. The box is specially designed to protect your Glowforge Aura. 

  1. Unplug your Glowforge Aura from the outlet. Then, unplug the power cord from the Glowforge Aura, and set it aside.

  2. Remove any material from your Glowforge Aura, and lift out the cutting tray. Put the cutting tray into the cardboard envelope. Then, place the envelope into the slot at the bottom of the box.

  3. Holding onto the laser end caps, move the laser arm to the middle of the Glowforge Aura bed.

  1. Find the two foam pieces that fit against the laser arm caps. They each have a cut-out corresponding to the shape of one end cap. Place each foam piece over the laser rails, then slide it to the side until it fits over the end cap.

  2. Lift the laser head, separating it from the magnetic dock. Slide the laser head into its foam piece with the logo facing up. The laser ribbon cable will slide through the slot at the top of the foam piece behind the head.
