The assembling of this prusa i3 kit is fun to put together. I took me about 10 hours to assemble over two days. I think building it gives you a good idea how everything works and that knowledge will come in handy when you need to troubleshoot the machine.
Tweaking and troubleshooting will be part of the process when trying to get the best prints possible. So if you want a printer that you just plug in and push a button to print you won't find it in this price range. If you want to get a printer that teaches you the basics by being hands on and not spending too much this is a great choice.
Totally satisfied with this Kit
I love this prusa i3 kit, but if you are expecting something that is plug and play, you will be disappointed. Once built, I have had a lot of success with the printer. The build was intense and took me two days. The instructions were clear and there were lots of good pictures. Lots of experimenting required to get successful prints, but if you do not give up, you will be very impressed with the quality.
