    My Robo E3 has arrived from Robo. Here are some unboxing photos:

    Robo E3 in its packaged box:

    Spare hotend and build plate (flexibleish) that comes with every E3

    Filament, Power Cord, Tool kit (couple allens, phillips screwdriver and grease), getting started guide and the coupons for My Stem Kits starter kit and 2 hours virtual training with Robo.

    Robo E3 out of the box, bubble wrapped nicely and covered with this plastic wrap to prevent scratches I assume

    PC viewing windows on the top and side of the machine

    Filament Side with panel off and filament loaded (500g spools are all that fit stock)
    E3 Spool and Feeder.jpg

    The feeder: You CANNOT operate by hand as your fingers (or at least mine) cant get to the level and move it (can with a flat head :) )

    Robo E3 powered on with a 500G included spool for scale (its small)

    Zoomed in on first layer after Z "calibration" (there is a menu that sets the z on the bed, you raise until a piece of paper fits and it stores the offset for you)

    First print was a small cube (the only included gcode on the machine, wish there were more) took 9 minutes

    Will be a benchy and deprime and the such tonight I'd imagine :D Yesterday was unboxing and "getting printing" which took all of ten minutes then loading prints from "robo print" slicer over the net to the printer distracted me lol. There is a 400% marvin waiting for pics when I get home :D

    Will they ever learn?
    RoboPrint? really?

    :)
    [OK, I get why trying to have an exclusive bundle for STEM would seem attractive, but the support you are now going to be obligated to deliver...]

    ya know for a click and go slicer, Flash Print (Robo print) is great. I actually use flash print with my Moai for cross lattice supports so somewhat familiar with it (only using it for supports that way though). If you want to tweak things flash print (robo print) makes life difficult.

    Yep I imagine it will be quite a bit. They release this model on the 30th (all orders go out so I'm told) so will be interesting to see what shakes out as far as using it from "step one". I'd like to say I did follow the guide...but honestly I just finger poked the touch screen until I got it doing what I needed then realized I should have followed the actual paperwork (but I've set up so many first prints its just natural at this point to poke until it prints vs reading---cuz words are hard:D)
