The Packaging is much better now! Nice video ;-)

But why do the label the filament with 3D Ink and those stupid codes?! Is this PLA, ABS or whatever?

yes, the video is really great. M3D really need to remember, what they are doing: they want to sell a consumer-grade printer but forget, that the average consumer is a brainless iSheep. They really need to give accurate instructions on how to unpack the printer and run the first print. I've read about several backers now that ruined their printer by just not taking off the transport-clamps (the test-prints).

I would have to agree with Barmonster. They really need to include a "Quickstart" manual. Preferably right on top so it is the first thing you see when you open the box. A link to a youtube video printed on paper doesn't quite cut it since most people are excited to get started and aren't going to take the time to type in the entire url. At a minimum they should setup an easy page to get to like (easier to type than the youtube url) and put a bold note about the transport clamps since most people won't recognize them as shipping material as easily as the tape and foam.

On the plus side, it does look like the unboxing experience has improved greatly. I think the new packing would have shaved about a half hour of peeling tape and bubble wrap off my unboxing. It's also interesting to see that it looks like they used the new software and the transport-clamps were printed without a raft.

Agreed. Good video. And definitely agreed that the OOBE for M3D is poor currently.
