There has been much ado about 3D printing lately. While that is truly awesome, there is a company that about to bring an affordable laser cutter to the consumer market. Laser cutters have been around for a while now, but the price, usually well above $50,000.00, have prevented them from breaking into the maker space the why that affordable 3D printers have. The company Glowforge is about to change that. They are about to release the Glowforge 1 to the market. This is a simple laser cutter that costs between $2000 and $4000 depending on the model. This is in line with the early models of 3D printer a few years back. This will be a welcomed addition to anyone's workshop. You can read more about it here, and here.
