Spare Parts FAQ


How can I order a spare part?

We have a variety of replaceable parts available for purchase in the Glowforge Shop.


A Spare Part I Need Is Out Of Stock

Due to a combination of challenges with inventory due to COVID-19 and unprecedented demand, some parts are subject to stockouts from time to time. 

The Glowforge team works hard to replenish inventory quickly, but we don’t have any information about when parts will be available.

You can sign up to be notified when parts are in stock by clicking the Email Me When Available link on the page for the specific part in our shop.
