Glowforge Aura: A badass DIY craft laser for everybody

Glowforge Aura laser engraver on shelf.

The Aura is a craft laser that allows you to cut, score, and engrave virtually anything you want, and works with materials like wood, acrylic, leather, and more.

If you’re an artisan or crafter, then you already know how much of a mess certain activities can create. Take cutting materials down to size, for example. Measuring and cutting leather and fabrics for a project, like making a handbag, creates quite a bit of chaos at your workstation. But even so, there are certain materials that are too tough to work with, or that might require special tools you have yet to acquire.

The Glowforge Aura is your answer to all of that, and more. It’s the “first-ever” craft laser that can cut, engrave, and score intricate designs on materials up to 1/4-inches thick. You can work with plywood, leather, acrylic, a variety of plastics, and much more. Imagine engraving your custom business or brand name on items you sell, easier than ever before. It employs a drag-and-drop software interface with a live camera preview, to make the entire process easy for everyone — even if you have no prior experience with lasers or engravers. It also works with Mac, PC, Android, iPhone, and more, so you don’t have to worry about switching ecosystems just to take advantage of all it has to offer.

The Aura uses a beam of light, about the width of a human hair, to cut or engrave items with incredible accuracy, up to one-thousandth of an inch. Plus it includes access to Magic Canvas: the first use of GenAI to create physical products.
