We were honestly a bit hesitant to use a laser machine in our small apartment. Would it be safe, especially with our cat Teddy? We are happy to report that yes, it is! The machine comes with a tinted lid so you can watch without fear of hurting your eyes. There is also a vent hose included to have all those pesky particles fly right out of any window. For an upgrade, the Glowforge Personal Filter™ which utilizes a HEPA filter attachment to filter the air so you can work wherever you want.
Trust us when we say our Glowforge Aura is one of the best upgrades our crafting game has ever received! It’s safety and ease make this machine perfect for any crafter’s tool arsenal!
