Nova 51 vs. Glowforge Time Comparison by Spin Customs

From Darryl Aspin with Spin Customs Laser Designs:
Hey all. As many of you know I bought a Thunder Nova 51 to add to my little shop of the 2 Glowforges I have. I Got it all set up and working a couple nights ago and have been playing around with it. I still have some work to do on settings and stuff to learn, but right away I was blown away at how fast it is. I decided to run a test on exact same material and exact same file to compare it to my Glowforge. Using my monogram design of course. HAHAHA. Glowforge: 12 minutes and 20 seconds Thunder: 3 minutes and 11 seconds Made a side by video of them both.
