My Rostock MAX kit from SeeMeCNC arrived today, as well as a second box containing some filament and a 2nd extruder kit. While I have to grant that everything appears to have arrived damage-free, I ended up with an entire garbage bag full of packing peanuts. After I’d cleared them out, the main box was nearly empty, so I went ahead and piled the contents of the 2nd box in there too. There was still tons of space left over. I suspect SeeMeCNC could significantly reduce their shipping costs if they just packed things a bit more efficiently.
Yes, I got the second extruder so I could play around a bit with multi-material printing - embedding objects within other objects, creating items with stiff parts and flexible parts, etc.
