Looking forward to seeing the new Makergear M3 and M4 and seeing the hardware/company covered by Joel Telling/3D Printing Nerd at Bay Area Maker Faire!

The site looks great. Could we see a video of the M3 dual in action?

Software is key. How about software to easily run and manage print farms. Sell a 4x-8x printer farm all pre-configured with easy to use software to control all printers from a single browser window. Small businesses could then have a little manufacturing operation.

Wireless good.
Bigger printer good.
New model number good.

Dual extruder on regular machine? meh.
Dual extruder on large machine? better.

Minimizing air friction? #lolwut :D

Looks like it's all good for new folks. Shiny new features are nice, but the actual prints will be the same high quality, best in class prints as the MG printer I already have? Dammit man, you did too good of a job on the M2/v4 combo. How am I supposed to lust after an upgrade when I am already so happy?

I will say, 12x12x12 M4 is pretty darn tempting. Imma go start counting my pennies.
I'm finally back to where I started two days ago!

That print area is the main draw for me as well. The other features are nice and all but the M2 is already so rock solid and I have most of them as upgrade I've done, but that extra size is very nice.

Raises hand... I'd like to know if there will be an upgrade option for the M2e as well.

Thanks for making such a great machine!
