Yeah I like them, very good machines
I wish they made a bigger one! Like 500 x 500 x 500

I saw they had a "big release" this week....and I had hoped for another printer.
Instead it's a PVA removal station....which was a big "Meh" for us. We just use warm water and an aquarium pump to speed the removal

PVA is heavier than water and settles to the bottom, PLA is lighter than water and floats to the top. After a print, I suspend the printed model and build plate upside down and just under the water line, in a bin just a little larger than the build plate. The build plate acts like a ceiling that holds the model under the water line until all PVA is disolved. Models extract easy if you let gravity do the work, and without the need for circulating water that can damage a delicate model.
