While tempting, a few things held me back:@Nifty Just want to say that if you are seriously considering that printer it would be worth having the patience to watch the first video as there are a few things you may wnat to consider before pulling the trigger
- I'd wait for the 2nd iteration / version (maybe a bit after the kickstarter has completed / shipped) for the software to be fully fleshed-out and bugs squished.
- While it does a lot of cool automated stuff... there are some things I like to do manually. I still don't have an auto-bed leveling system... and I'm ok with that. Maybe my mind would be changed once I start using one successfully. I'm guessing if that were to happen, it would be on a printer like this.
- Replacement parts: I love how cheap and accessible replacement parts are for my printers.
- I do enjoy tinkering with my Creality printers, and love that there are SO MANY printable modifications out there for both of my models. Maybe someday I'll tire of tinkering and just want a nice printer that I don't have to even think about.
That said, I'm SUPER excited about their design and features and REALLY hope that this pushes all the other manufacturers to get off their butts and start really innovating faster to bring even more features while driving down prices.
