This is a great kit. This is my first 3d printer, and it was fairly easy to put together. I love the ease of the 2020 aluminum, and my ability to print accessories that can easily attach. Also, their service is great. I was missing a couple of parts, and they were super helpful in shipping me out replacements. I would definitely recommend getting this kit.

These clips work wonders for cable management. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1150396 I used this case to attach an OctoPi(https://github.com/guysoft/OctoPi) server: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:608169

Finally my 3D printer arrived after 25 days of ordering due to spare parts shortage. I am a bit disappointed with the slow shipping process. I was excited to have my first 3D printer but now my excitement has gone, maybe because it is an average printer and I expected a lot from it.

The print quality is just fine specially that of the very first printouts. The best part about the printer is that it is economical. Assemble your printer with patience and read all the instructions twice or thrice and you would be good to go. Suitable for beginners. 



Very happy with my prints, however instructions became confusing at certain points as certain screws were changed with different ones. Also printer head became very dirty, as the plastic seaped through edges on the top and bottom of the heated end.

I really like this printer. I really do. its good for the price and is simplified to the point where a 12 year old can do it (Thats who i bought it for) The software can be glitch at times, but is also simplified. I actually have 2 prints going right now as I write this.

I have been looking to build a 3D printer for about a year and just finished building a laser cutter/engraver as a sort of "practice build."

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.
