    That was a great video! More of this with titles like “ok now let’s delve into Replcator G” These would really help those beginning as well as existing users see how to do something new with the latest and greatest, It doens’t have to be Bre but it’s very cool to see the CEO present these and his energy is perfect! Another great job Annelise!

    Would you be able to tell me how long it takes to print that rabbit please? I’ve been struggling to find videos of printing in real time without any edits or speeding up. I know form the specs it can do 24cc/hr flow but I would like to put that into context. Thanks.

    Martin – to give you some ideas, the Giant Hollow Two Color World globe that is featured on Thingiverse and used in the unveiling video took 15 hours to print (according to Far from MBI). It could probably get dropped to 13-14 depending on settings. So, that bunny probably took 8-10 hours, is my guess.
