Re: Does the M2 work in non-cumulative mode with the G-code?

[Edit] Hold the phone. It may be very simple. If you tell S3D to generate relative addressing then you shouldn't have to change anything in the G code that it generates. The G90 at the beginning (assuming that it generates a G90) is most likely a move to place Work Zero in the appropriate location i...

Re: what would be the best filament for this application?

One thing to consider, with a 150mm diameter fan spinning at 50,000 rpm your blade tips will be traveling at 706,858 Km/hr or 439,221 miles/hr.

Re: Glowforge laser printer

I finally got an answer from Glowforge about the "cool features" that they have that is their reason for running in the cloud.

This is an interesting device. I took a little time to try to get more information. I have lots of reservations about "cloud" software so I asked if the unit could be used in a stand alone configuration. Here is the answer from Glowforge support: Many of Glowforge's coolest features are possible bec...
