We’re delighted to announce a new 3D printing class using the Glowforge printer at The Lab at North Spokane Library.

For 3D printing enthusiasts, Glowforge brings a new method for creation.

Those familiar with our 3D printing services and drop-in hours at Spokane Valley Library know all about our Ultimaker 2+ printer and the way it prints objects through the additive method of adding layer after layer of plastic filament.

The Glowforge printer works differently using a subtractive method. It uses a laser cutter/engraver to remove material to create the design. It can cut and engrave wood, leather, acrylic, fabric, cardboard, paper, and more.

Here is look at how the Glowforge printer works.

You can also check out inspiring designs created with a Glowforge printer at their customer gallery.
