Davinci Color Unboxing

This video was recorded before the sound upgrade that you all have been enjoying the past 2 videos. Plus, it's in my shed where lighting is a problem. So expect this one to be the worst of all my audio and video.

Stylistically, I wanted to emulate with this video the Vlog style that I've been watching some of lately. In particular the vlog style of Graham Stark of Loading Ready Run, though the royalty free music I used in this video was a lot less techno/hiphop and more Metalmania.

This unboxing took pretty much all day, and I never got to printing by the end of the day. Keeping in mind that I'm on the Beta team and that you can't even buy this printer yet... well, you know, just keep that in mind. I don't want to say too much, about my experiences following this or about the elephant in the room of the fact that XYZPrinting is pretty much the opposite of the open source 3D printing movement. I haven't recorded my next video about this yet, and I'm not sure what I'm going to remember to say or not, yet, but I don't want to blow my content before it's content. But maybe an outline of what I hope to talk about next will suffice:

  • Finding a home
  • Setting up wifi
  • software/firmware mismatch problems
  • Bricking the machine by updating the firmware
  • Getting a replacement motherboard
  • First successful color print
  • First unsuccessful color print
  • Crash course in UV mapping
  • This ain't open source
