Can you post a link to the video?

At first glance, it looks like someone just slapped a PB label on a different make, or even a homebrew kit?

The big printer looks like a gussied up Creality CR-10. The smaller one looks like a M3D with a LCD panel.

Smaller one looks a lot like the Flashforge Finder to me.

Close up seen on another video today of printer at table where Brook could be found for much of ERRF. Is it a rebranded model printrbot is toying with?

I read elsewhere that Brook said it's too hard to compete against the cheap imports in the low end market these days and is looking at options. Not surprising, hard to beat low cost high volume manufacturing for those customers only interested in is price. Outsourcing and relabeling could be a way to draw users in and get them familiar with Printrbot, then when they grow out of it (in a couple months?) move them up to something bigger and better.

Wonder how this affects being "open source", although the bent metal Printrbots are already outside of what most DIYers can make in a home shop.

The 3D printer market is moving closer to commodity printers, a lot of the current vendors will likely disappear. Hope Brook manages to be one of the survivors

I saw that on one of his webcasts too. Prusa has found an apparently profitable niche without offering a low cost entry level printer to draw people in. If and when printrbot ever finds a model with comparable features and print quality made of metal able to go head to head with the latest Prusa design, an entry level printer would not be necessary IMHO to sustain and grow printrbot. I had a Simple Pro for 30 days and maybe that model is it.....however back when I had it, the software was not really ready for public consumption.

From this article https://hackaday.com/2018/07/19/a-farewell-to-printrbot/ have learned that was a modified Flashforge Finder rebranded as a Printrbot Easy.
