  1. I am considering buying a Glowforge laser cutter for our studio but as it's a $5000 investment I want to make sure we are going to be able to use it with VW. There was another thread on this topic that seemed somewhat inconclusive as to how well VW works with cutters. Some said they had no problem, some said 'can't do it' and some had long workarounds via Illustrator or other software. Ideally what we'd like to do is build our digital 3d models, create viewports like we are doing for ink. but then convert those viewports to vector lines that the Glowforge can read and cut. No problem converting, changing attributes, and exporting in some other file format, but I don't want to spend hours in some other software preping files and crossing my fingers. So where is the conversation on direct or semi-direct export from VW to laser cutters? Or for 3D printers for that matter--something else we are considering. Love to get some official word.
