You have to work through some issues with the manual but overall it was an amazing experience for my 14 year old to build his first 3d printer and print out a cool little shamrock container. He was stuck at first because we thought a part was missing. It took a week for support to respond to our e-mail during the holidays but they finally did and helped us find the part we were overlooking. Some wires come connected and have to be separated in order to be used. He watched the videos to make sure he did everything before printing and then he was ready to go and it worked!

Slimbot is a complete kit , half the price for similar printer kits, wouldn't recommend for someone without a mechanical/electronics background or a lot of patience. Assembly instructions and software setup don't match or are out of date in places but the video was helpful, would take 6-8 hours to assemble and calibrate for the first time if you know what you're doing and haven't assembled a kit before. Very pleased with the quality of the printer and parts.

No printed parts. Easy assembling. The machine works well. Great product for the price

Slimbot 3D Printer is probably the most no fuss 3d printer kit out there; and at $239 it is also the cheapest one. Before this I had a Maker bot and it worked pretty well until its electronics blew up and upgrading them would have costed enough to buy 2 of these.

The printer arrived in 10 days and the package had everything needed to build a working printer. I ordered kit with auto bed leveling, large print bed and E3D Bowden Metal Extruder.

The printer works well for now and I'm pretty happy with the way customer service handled me

Great bang for your buck but remember that you are buying a kit and it needs lot of patience to get it to work correctly. If you do not have the patience better buy a complete printer.

Once you manage to get the printer working I am sure you would be addicted to Thingiverse, but reaching to this stage is a real tough task. The Instruction is not very informative so you would have to depend on online support groups to get them together.

The only thing I did not like about the printer is the electronics are open and can be seen, I am worried that one with a curious mind would fiddle with the printer and screw up the wirings.
