I like the 2th movie, though a bit long...

1st movie is pretty annoying IMHO, it's like 80% commercials?

And about auto leveling.... "the glass plate autolevels"  it actually does not, the printer detects where the glass is not level and compensates for that in the first x layers of the print, that's why you will hear the z-axis do the compensating in the beginning of the print. It's still a good idea to start with a manual level and make sure the glass is also physically leveled pretty good to begin with, so there's less need for compensation.

Yes ! My colleague had a problem with warping on the UM3... we had to run the manual leveling first otherwise the automatic leveling wasn't able to correct properly.

Imo, I'd rather not rely on the automatic leveling. The only usage I see with this system, is to correct when the glass is not perfectly flat or if you have several glass that you like to swap for faster production.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
