Thanks for all the details and answer what questions you could that you chose not to release.
To kind of sum it up:
Camera system- sorry, I think users will be less than happy with this compared to external IP cameras and much more feature rich solutions.
I do understand the security concerns (someone using the camera to spy on a user or workplace) but somehow a better compromise needs met (in other words, get the security in place (login and authentication allowing transfer). Again, to me, users are simply going to find the camera not as useful and feature rich as they may want.
Filament detection and workarounds= fail. Create shorter segments?? Breaking segments is visible in a single wall print- most likely where you are printing a large object with a big flat face (hence why the segment would be long). It's just not a plan. Please tell me this will not be enabled by default in Ideamaker as that would wreak havoc with current owners. In other words, a menu and to enable it warns the user of potential issues, disabled by default and requires a conscience user action to enable. Again, I'd have trouble telling anyone that's a good workaround. Instant pause has problems too, cannot happen in the middle of a segment unless there is some serious low level code happening in the motion planner. Bottom line is for some prints, probably works fine and catches before you are actually out of filament and make a line without extruding. On the other hand, there are also absolutely prints that will run out before pause stops in time. You hope that's on infill and not the perimeter. Single wall vase mode- best of luck.
HEPA air filter= a gimmick at best. Sorry, that's just my opinion, but the size alone, I just shake my head.
Again, everything else is great.
Sure, I'm upset you cannot share more about the electronics or firmware. I'm not happy about not releasing the source code as no way to even peer review the code. I think holding back the stepper driver information, that makes zero sense and only just hurt you on potential sales.
But I do think there is a lot of work and upgrade done to the control system and electronics= and that helps justify the value added.
I think the Bondtech extruder is the no brainer.
I think the bed is also good and strong selling point to new customers.
I'm still on the fence on the moving nozzles. It's like what I said did not register with you. I think it works fine, may be the next best thing ever. However, there is a disconnect between the user you are marketing to skill wise, and ability to properly assemble a V2 hotend which has not changed in construction details. Again, users break them now, they will break them on the Pro2 series as well.
Simply put, while I and other technical experienced users like discrete components and assemblies, the novice user, this can be and is proven to be one area where tech support and damage rack up. You want to sell to a different user, and yet this is one area where change is needed for that market.
Last, I'm tempted to call you out on speeds. If the basic gantry mechanics stayed the same, and the change here is electronics and firmware, yes, you may have sent gcode at 80mm/s perimeter. Like I've said hundreds of times, that's like a speed limit sign in both the max speed and desired speed- but absolutely says nothing to the actual mechanical speed. You might have improved and printed faster, but real speed and set speed are not the same thing. Again, not saying you could not have made an improvement, I'm saying let's not kid each other and lie, that number and it's actual mechanical movement value are not the same. And really, I'm saying a negative statement here, so if I'm wrong, then great for you and egg on my face. If I'm right, then users printing massive objects will see a speed increase, but not at the scale the numbers indicate. 25mm/s to 80mm/s is more than 3X faster, but the print is not 3X shorter in time.
