To prolong the life of your Glowforge and to reduce the risk of fire or mechanical failure, do not put the Glowforge where it could be subjected to:

  • Extreme temperature or humidity
    • Plus/Pro/Basic
      • Temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) or over 120 degrees Fahrenheit (48 degrees Celsius), and humidity
      • Humidity below 10% or more than 75%

      • Humidity below 20% or more than 80%
    • If venting outdoors, ensure that changing conditions do not cause extreme temperatures to affect the printer or humidity to enter the Glowforge through the exhaust hose. Disconnect the hose from the outside air when the Glowforge is not in use.
  • Direct sunlight
  • Rain, moisture, or liquids
  • Excessive hair, dust, or small particles
  • Loose materials such as paper or a tablecloth that could be sucked into the air intake on the bottom of the Glowforge

Print when the ambient temperature is within the following ranges. Printing outside these ranges may cause your print to pause periodically or fail to complete.

    • Basic/Plus/Aura: Between 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) and 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius)
    • Pro: Between 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) and 81 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius)
