New “user” here, not a user because apparently I bought a “stolen” unit from someone who bought it at auction and didn’t know what it is.
Long story short, I am now the owner of a aesthetically pleasing paperweight Glowforge Pro. The only things that were missing were the power cord, crumb tray and ventilation hoses. I got all the way to connecting the unit to the internet and had to reach out to support to find out 72 hours later that they “could not locate the purchase of the unit so it must be stolen and has been deactivated.” They went on to say, “sorry, if you file a police report we can make sure this doesn’t happen to someone else.”
I’m here to ask if there is anything I can do with this thing or if I should just sell it for scrap. I’m super frustrated with their business model and the built in self destruct feature they incorporated into their design. Also…wtf?! Online only?!
Anyway, I hope there is something I can do with this brick.
