I am EXTREMELY happy with this printer. I'm not sure you can find another 3D Printer in this price range with those specifications. Every negative thing you can say about this printer can be fixed with upgrades or add-on's. I received my printer on a Friday and had it printing Sunday afternoon. Early adopters have a few problems with the Manual but the latest 'Rev B' versions seemed to fix that. Rather then use Folger Tech's version of the Marlin firmware, i downloaded the latest version and modified it with the settings from Folger Tech. A few upgrades i've added... Aluminum Print Bed and Inductive Sensor for auto bed leveling (like Printrbots). LCD Graphic Smart Display Controller + SD card reader I'm also currently building a box/platform that will make it easier for me to move it around.

Great printer, Cheap to buy

This kit is extremely easy to assemble giving you the joy of DIY! After assembling it, I was able to get my first print in just 15 minutes. Seeing the exceptional quality of the print made me super happy.

The open-source hardware makes it easy to modify and upgrade. I definitely recommend this kit to all those who want to have fun with the 3D printing and learn in the process.

3D printers are slow in their functioning and often come at an expensive market price, which is why one should invest upon them with care.

Prusa i3 printers from Folger Technologies are among the best 3D printers available in the market and also come at a competitive market price. One can easily set up this kit by following the instructions mentioned on its cover. It is probably the best choice for beginners, who are going to use 3D printer for the first time.

I'm frankly happy to own the machine and would recommend it if you are technically inclined. If you are not, order some assembled 3d printer which would allow you to skip the problem part.

Prusia i3- A portable 3D printer Kit for Beginners

If you have never tried your hand upon 3D printers before and looking forward to use it in the near future, we suggest you to use Folger Technologies Prusa i3 as a beginner’s kit.

This 3D tool kit has an impressive build area of 203mm x 203mm x 178 mm and runs on 110V or 220V but only with a USB cord. It would take you a bit of time and effort to assemble this 8 cubic inch print area machine but it is worth to invest upon as it combines the simplicity of an erector set and an expensive desktop printer.
