The Prusa i3 is a great starter printer and this kit is an inexpensive entry point. However, acrylic is a very poor choice for portions of this frame. Even with the utmost care, it is difficult not to crack the acrylic when screwing the clamps for the feed rods and even then there is not enough pressure to hold the rods properly in place.

The directions were less and less detailed as the build moved forward, were not updated with the z-axis stepper motor wiring, and did not include a number of steps.

Thankfully, the price of the hardware and electronics are good enough that the need to replace much of the frame in the future isn't a total loss.

Customer service, however, was excellent, with quick email responses and they sent files so that I could 3D print ones that arrived broken and will be able to replace the ones that are cracked or too weak after assembly.

Very good value for money. I ordered during the Christmas holidays so there was a delay in shipping; however once shipped took 4 days to get to UK.

Comes with lots of instructions - there are mistakes. Some are obvious, some are because the manufacturer upgraded parts.

I did have a problem with the acrylic and in particular one section; I had to remove acrylic to get it together. Emailing the manufacturer identified the problem and they offered to replace one piece of acrylic, whereas a complete box section is needed.

Building took around 5 hours, this is my first printer. Setting up to print decently will take time and I'm seeing improvements after 4 hours of tweaking. Those in the know, will tune much quicker. I am impressed with the results so far.

If you are looking for value, a challenge then this is a very good kit. I don't regret purchasing it.

Received in time ... no problems with the printer parts, but the outer package in part humid (in the end without consequences)...printer assembly in 6-7h (with videos on delivered cd) 2h for calibration (adherence problem)...but very happy with my first successful print...
