Very nice and good mechanical 3d printer this Sunhokey, but as many people i suppose, extrusion motor is not force enough (jump motors steps) and i don't know how to change step/mm so i finally swap hotend by E3D v6 and it working properly now better with Cura 15.04.4 better than repetier. Better too with mirror glass and BuildTak on, for not use any glue, i always use raft option and the objects are all nice everytime.

This seems to be a good model to start with, provided you have a bit of nouse when it comes to putting things together. I ordered mine 22nd Dec and it arrived 31st, which is amazing given the time of year.

Everything others have said about the frame cracking easily etc is true, but wans't a big deal for me.

I had a couple of other problems:

- Play on the x carriage is more than I consider acceptable. I can improve by printing a 4 bearing carriage.

The rods on x are 7.98, a little undersized. The Z and Y rods are spot on diameter.

-The firmware needs to be flashed (Marlin worked) in order to calibrate e-steps (factory setting is 80.5, I ended up at 94.2)

- Mine wont't read the SD card (before or after flashing firmware)

- I spent the best part of a day problem solving the extrude stepper motor missing steps. The solution ended up being mounting a cooling fan to blow air across the stepper driver heatsinks, they were overheating and shutting down very briefly.

-The bowden tube is 3mm inside diameter so I am using a lot of suckback to take up the play in the 1.75mm filament. I've ordered 2mm ID tube which will hopefully make it better.

Overall I am very happy with this model for the price, and had a good experience purchasing from this site.

I just received my printer over the Xmas break. I'm 90% finished building it and yet to turn it on.

The Customer Support from these guys is amazing.. Great work. Printer is Extremely well packed. Instructions could be better. I would suggest a printable sheet with plastic parts listed in order on video build and even putting a sticker or writing on the protective covering the part number.

The only complaint is the LCD screen needs another support bolt/support on the knob/button side as it flexes alto without it. Other then that the video was responsible easy to follow.

I will recommend then to anyone.. and I am definitely ordering from 3dprintersonline.com again... Amazing.. will post a review once i get the printer running in the next few days.

All the components are very high quality and fit like a glove. The assembly can be tricky but once you are over it you are up for some real fun. I was able to get it together with help from online forums.

 I highly recommend the Sunhokey Acrylic to anyone looking for a good value and really high speed printing.
