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.

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.

This was my first home 3D printer I bought, the price was right compared to the other 3D printers on the market. everything came packaged extremely well. I've had this printer for roughly a month when the extrude head went south, it would not heat to the proper temperature, I contacted Tech support and had a new one shipped to me without a problem. The Tech support guys are the greatest, I mean it. I recommend this 3D printer for anyone wishing to buy one, it's a great machine to have.

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.

I have been keeping up with the 3d printer world for some 5 years now. I had always been nervous to delve into them simply because I'm more of an electrical guy and according to forums and what not it seems like people have a lot of mechanical problems when it comes to 3d printing.

I must say though... EXCELLENT buy! I've been immensely happy with the purchase of this machine! it took 5 days to ship to me and only 5 hours to put together! software is easy to use and the firmware pre-loaded on my board was already set up with the right motors, steps, thermistors, and everything else!

Literally all I had to do was build it, plug it in, and print. Extremely easy! Granted I have to calibrate it for fine tuned adjustments but this task really seems easy to do, especially when following repraps many tutorials on doing so. Highly recommend!
