My previous experience with 3D printer was not as good as expected. Thereby, I wanted a good budget entry level printer that could produce excellent prints.
The Sunhokey Prusa i3 is perfect open-source hardware 3D printing solution. This high strength printer is especially designed for commercial use. It works so smoothly without any hiccups. You simply need little bit of time and few simple tools to get started with the 3D printing!
Great printer, everything fit together perfectly. Very precise laser cutting. All the screws and nuts are stainless steel, high quality.
The video are easy to follow, a few bits missing like mounting the main board and installing the Y axis belt, but all pretty obvious.
The only concern I have is the X axis linear guides are a bit loose on the rods allowing a bit of slop.
Follow the given electronic diagram for connecting everything, easy.
I leveled the X axis (before I mounted the hot end) by winding the Z drives all the way down both sides, marking the couplers with a line both sides, then winding both the Z drives back up an equal number of turns.
I leveled the bed by using a continuity meter between the hot end and the bed, adjusting all 4 corners, when it buzzed it was touching, easy.
I have since updated the firmware to allow auto bed leveling and EEPROM access.
All in all a great printer for the money especially with 2 kgs of filament and free shipping!
