Ultimaker 3 review movies

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.
