It took about a week to get the kit. It came nicely packaged. We have spent perhaps 5 hrs. and I am guessing we are about half way done with mechanical assembly.

We are taking our time and being careful. No problems so far, good instructions, most parts are in numbered bags except the plastic parts which are mostly in one big bag --which is fine since they are clearly identifiable from pictures.

My teen (19) son is doing all the assembly and has needed little help from me. I chose this 3D Printer over others not just because it was less expensive but because I really liked the mechanical design/architecture.

I'm an engineer and the way they designed the extruded aluminum structure is the way I would have done it. Also I selected it because the speed, resolution and especially the larger size of part that I can fabricate are all very competitive specs. 



Let me say this, Assembling really really tested my patience at one stage I even thought to end this work but remembering my dollars I somehow managed to complete and it looks like everything is fine for now and prints are more than ok.

It was a good learning experience for me. Apart from this, the parts I received were high quality and can't complain about it. One more thing instructions should have been better.  I can give 3 out 5.

First of all this is a great kit for the money, it is a low cost kit to get started in 3d printing. I ordered this kit and it wasn't to hard to put together if you can understand the pictures in the instruction manual. It took me a total of 11hrs from when it landed on my door step till I was getting a decent print out of it.

My printer was delivered on time and well packaged for its trip from China. Luckily there are lots of online resources for learning all the special tricks on setup and optimization. Cheap and best 3d printers for beginners.

A 3D printer for $249, who would have thought it, would be possible just a few years ago. This cheap printer is great place to begin learning 3D printing. I would not say it’s perfect but then I was not expecting it to be. It has a good build volume and printing quality is decent. MK8 printer nozzles are really good to extrude almost all kind of filaments available in the market.
