The Glowforge 3D printer works with wood, paper, aluminum, or, yes, raw fish

The Glowforge desktop printer uses a 3D laser for accurately burning off parts of a material to form the desired shape. Unlike the more prominent additive plastic-melting type 3D printer, this printer can work with many different materials including wood, fabric, leather and, yes, food.

The Glowforge looks exactly like a giant inkjet printer from afar. But don’t let the mild form fool you, inside is a 45-watt laser that can burn through a quarter inch of plywood or acrylic and is also safe for use with food.
