Makerbot TV S01E06 - Dual Extrusion MK7 (again?!)

Episode 6 of Makerbot TV, from the weekly video series at Makerbot Industries, has just been delivered.  Hmm, while this weeks episode is a bit informational, its rather light on actual makerbot "awesomeness" and is trending toward "infomercial" territory.  I would like to see more videos featuring the makerbot and something akin to make magazine "weekend projects"  videos rather than just a 5 min video of "hey we have brown filament and here is the MK7 extruder, ooo wow awesome", again.  I know I'd like it if the videos were longer and actually had projects featured. 

One nice bit in this episode is they do mention the updates to replicatorG ( 0026) and that older replicatorG code isn't compatible with the new 3.0 firmware so you need the 0026 update.

This video series has its good episodes but I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be watching these if the trend tends to be a 5 min info/fluff piece.  It almost seems like they're sitting around on a monday morning and say "oh nos! we have to do a video!"  Put some real substance in and if they run longer than 5min we'll be ok with that!

Oh well </rant> 

Here is the video in case you want to check it out for yourself. btw a mere 3:46 this time around...yah, exactly...
