Is upgrading from V3 to V4 worth the $100? Why?

My maker gear rocks, I love it!

Just wondering, is upgrading to V4 worth it?

What makes it better? What do I do with my now obsolete extruder?

Thanks guys!

Coloring pla with sharpie before printing?

Came across an article that shows you how to color pla before printing to get different colors

http://3dprintboard.com/showthread.php? ... nt-Colorer
