Inside the left-hand side of your Glowforge Pro, Plus or Basic you'll find a silver colored box with small window on it. This protective window shields the mirrors and optics of your Glowforge from harmful dust and dirt. This silver-ringed orange window screws into the silver box on the far left side of your Glowforge. 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 silver laser window:
- Turn off your Glowforge
- Locate the silver laser window on the left
- Unscrew the silver laser window (For additional grip, try a rubber glove)
- Screw in the new window
- Wipe the new window with a Zeiss Wipe
