I seem to have it working now. Still have to figure out all the settings but I have printed some things that came out okay. The kit NEEDS some good documentation, though.

This is an entry level printer and needs entry level documentation, and not a video of somebody silently assembling it from experience or coaching or written instructions off camera.

Needs some hand holding for newbies who don't have a clue about how to use it once it is built, too. The assumption seems to be that the buyer knows what he is doing and doesn't need somebody telling him what to do.

But the acrylic parts are cut quite nicely and everything went together well. My only complaint about the actual finished unit is that the spool holder is pretty bogus. It should have a base so the two sides cant just tip over every time you even breathe on it.

This is a great machine for beginners. First off, you can't beat the price, especially if you're not sure if this is something you really want to get into, or if you've just convinced yourself you really need one (like I did). It prints a pretty high resolution (100 microns), which isn't something you'd really expect of a printer in this price range. Best 3d printer for the price, if you follow the instructions to use.

Great printer for the price. Fast shipping too. You need mechanical and electrical skills to assemble this printer. A knowledge of 3D printer software/firmware is also needed. For the most part the instructions were enough to assemble the printer. There is plenty of information on the net if you run into trouble.

There is also plenty of after market printable parts available to make up for the weaker areas of this printer. I was able to assemble and make my first part in two days without any tweaking. I did have a bent rod but it was faster to buy a replacement locally than to wait on the replacement.

Bottom line;

Great printer for the price.

You get what you pay for.

Fast shipping.

Fast reply from customer service.

I have recommended this printer to many of my friends and would buy another in a heart beat!

Aside from the horrendous customer service at Sun Hokey, this printer is actually pretty good. Most of it is brilliantly designed, but then there are some serious faults that make you wonder if they're venting the ABS fumes from the lab.

There's obvious flaws with the Z axis endstop, shoddy bearings, crooked belt tensioner assemblies, and a warped aluminum heated bed. The machine doesn't sit flat on a table, and I had to bolt it down to keep it consistent.

Works perfectly for me. Easy to assemble. Easy to use. Video are clear, but must follow the picture's for the wiring. (It might also take some time to adjust the printer). But that's a perfect printer to begin with. Good product. I recommend it
