GlowForge is a personal in-home laser etcher 3D printer.
I am still learning the ropes around 3D etching and cutting. I waited over 2 years to receive my GlowForge from one of the world’s largest crowd funded campaigns. Now that I finally have mine, I’m learning to create the amazing artworks I see in my head in order to bring you new beautiful creations that glow-in-the-dark, use LEDs, black light paints, and are functional and meaningful.
Currently, I am developing two key lines of thought for display in the RAW: GALLERY
- Cutting acrylic and making it look like stained glass art
- Creating LED based artworks with meaningful words like “Love, Coffee, I Love You, Adventure, Peace, Joy” and adding custom embellishments to enhance the meaning behind the work

Acrylic GF Cut, foil and soldered like stained glass, painted with glass paints, acrylics, and glow-in-the-dark powders
First make #lasercut #acrylic look like #stainedglass paint tests. I #3Dprinted a bunch of 1×1 clear acrylic squares, I'll foil with two different width #copperfoil and then get some #soldering practice in, then test painting to see how the paints various, paints, powders, and pigments work together. In this above example: I used #GlowInTheDarkPowders, mixed with #StainedGlassPaints . They look great when in the dark, #twilight, and direct sunlight dining through, but a bit milky and not very stained glad lime when no light shining through, so I'll take that into consideration. But, all in all, #FunStuff #MadeOnAGlowforge #plexiglass #abstractdesign #abstractart #contemporarydesigner #designartist #abstractartist #abstractstainedglass #stainedglassdesigner #designer

#GlowForge cutting my second #acrylic #stainedglass like test. The first attempt, to the left of the one being cut, I had to correct vector line issues and reduce the gaps between pieces for cut number 2. It took me some time to resolve how to convert the art. I used Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and had to run back and forth between the two programs, too get the proper file format with needed spacing for glowforge cutting. Anywho, I'm pretty happy so far with my second attempt. #artist #art #3dlaserprintee #3dlaserprinting #glowforgeprinting
