I've seen this in action, and I'm very impressed. The price point really opens this technology up to a lot of makers who previously couldn't afford access to a 3D laser printer.

@deanputney @danshapiro Excuse my french here, but holy shit this is so awesome!!! I was watching the video and I'll give you the play by play...
- ok, cool.
- ok, that's cool...
- ok, HOLY SHIT!

But seriously though, having something like this can return the investment ten fold. I might have missed it, but what are the file extensions that you can use with this? EPS, AI, or PDF?

@sethlouey Thanks Seth! There's a partial list at http://glowforge.com/tech-specs/ as well as a lot of other goodies. We expect to be pretty flexible in what we ingest and add a lot more to that list over time.

@erictwillis @sethlouey The drone's real; we've got two of them with us at Makerfaire. Dual counterrotating rubberband gattling guns unload roughly 80 bands/sec. These were built on an Iris+ frame, and use a pair of laser-cut delrin gears (plus an extra motor) to drive both gattling guns.
