The Seattle-based start-up, GlowForge Plus started off with laser cutting technology. Glowforge Plus 3D laser printer is one of the few variants the company offers with easy to use labels, the product is designed for further simplifying the laser cutting process. 

The earlier variant GlowForge Pro was developed for advanced users with the pass-through slot that allowed its users to continue the work for unlimited hours. However, that is not the only part that is an inclusion in the Plus variant, the main difference is that the company has brought down the price by a considerable amount. There are two cameras used at wide-angle that is mounted on the lid. These cameras are useful in providing a view of the printable area. To be precise, it offers a view even within 6mm. Another one is the macro camera which is mounted on the head. This is for providing extreme information for autofocus within 0.1mm. The print quality of GlowForge Plus is nice to the extent that one can depend on the machine for various tasks. The laser engraver helps in printing on different materials. Moreover, as per the promises made by the company, one can achieve the precision of width equals to human hair. Hence, it is highly accurate and precise.

While the price of the printer isn’t too cheap, it does offer the advanced features that are noticed in many expensive choices than this one. Hence, overall, Glowforge completely deserves the cost and justifies it clearly.
