I was going to buy parts from different sources and could not get the total price anywhere near what I found in the 2020 i3 kit. I pre-ordered the kit and received it 3 days after it was released.
I took my time building it over the next week and I am 100% satisfied with it! It is my first 3D printer and like anything else DIY - you have to have patience and it will pay off. Ignore the negative comments you may see here or elsewhere. Folgertech is great in my book.
More reviews after received the printer. Thank you.
