Replace the Print Head Window


A protective window on the left side of your print head shields the mirrors and optics of your Glowforge head from harmful dust and dirt. This black-ringed orange window screws into the removable black printer head. If it becomes scratched, damaged or has residue that won't come off with cleaning, it may impact print results and will need to be replaced.


Here are the steps to replace your print head window:

  1. Turn off your Glowforge
  2. Remove the Printer Head (under "Things that need wiping")
  3. Unscrew the Printer Head Window (It's possible that it will be difficult to turn. If it is, try using a rubber glove for extra grip)
  4. Screw in the new window
  5. Wipe the new window with a Zeiss Wipe or similar lens cleaning wipe.
  6. Replace the Printer Head
  7. Turn your unit back on and try a print!
