Geeetech E180 and the Future of 3D Printing March MadMess video

Basically, I'm saying I want a MP Select Mini to have this touch screen.

As mentioned in the video, see the Neva writeup for my rant about heated build plates.

If you're an avid follower of the blog, you might have recognized the rant about the 3D printing becoming more appliance at the start of this video as having it's genesis in the post about the JGAurora A5. There are probably going to be other times where I start to form an idea here, and then it makes it's way into a future video. So keeping up on the blog is a great way to get a sneak peek into future video topics.

If you're not an avid follower of this blog, you probably aren't reading this, so there's no point in my going on about that.

In this video I failed to mention the ecosystem that Geeetech is creating with their easy print app and web site. I failed to mention it because I never got that far. I would love to play wit an app that you can choose from a pre-curated set of plated models and start printing right there, control your printer from your phone and show off what's it's doing easily. And I appreciate that you can still control the pritner without it, because if I had to whip out my phone every time I wanted to pause a print... let's just say I've been there with octoprint and I don't like it. For this app alone I am willing to crack open this printer's replacement and give it another chance.

Part of me is wondering how their implementation of this idea is going to let me down, too, though. I've been hurt, bad.
