    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to pass on this fun little video I made. I hope to go more in depth soon! Let me know what you think :)



    Thanks,
    Andrew

    "Find a file and send it to the printer" is pretty misleading. Also holy LOL at all the money wasted on that MatterControl tablet and that terrible music.

    Hello! Thank you for your feedback and concerns! The goal was to show users the simplicity of the Robo 3D platform, especially people who aren't familiar with 3D printing. As stated, I hope to go more in depth in future videos. I personally like my Matter Control tablet, but thank you for the concern.

    Glad to see that yours worked that well out of the box. I never tried the tablet, I went for the LCD controller. thanks for the video!

    Thanks for the video.
    I also went with the tablet T-10 and it was great for a short time. Matter Control is ok for those starting off and having the tablet does at least eliminate needing a dedicated PC or laptop. I moved on to Cura after about 4 or 5 months and never looked back. However, the wife loves the tablet and is still using it enthusiastically.

    I hope to move to the LCD controller soon.

    One critique offered in a friendly manner (rather than those who choose to belittle and laugh) I believe it is a mistake to make 3D printing "look" easy without warning that at this level of printing, it will often require tweaking, upgrading, and quite a bit of climbing up the learning curve. They (3d Printers) are not quite plug and play yet.
    With that warning in place it may cut down on the number of new users who want to toss their "defective" printers down the stairs.
