Glowforge laser cutter

Hi everyone,

I’m Hyejin from Fab Academy 2020.

I’m thinking about getting a laser cutter for personal use at home, and the one that I want to get is Glowforge Basic with the air filter. ( It’s at about $3500.

I’m wondering if anyone has any recommendations or suggestions on a laser cutter around this price range(~$4000) other than Glowforge. Or if anyone already has it, I’m interested in your reviews on it.

Thanks and take care!


Yes, it is indeed a good laser cutter but it’s a bit towards the expensive side. You may find great engraver alternatives for atleast half of the price here. Also, be sure to invest in a smaller laser cutter if you’re a beginner or a hobbyist,
