The short of it: I got more than my money's worth, in a good way. I received this printer kit about three weeks ago. It came nicely packaged with the motors and other delicate parts well protected. There was even a checklist of parts that someone had gone through to fill the box. This is my first 3D printer so I didn't know what to expect, and all the parts involved were foreign to me. I watched the videos a bit, and skimmed through the assembly instructions before starting anything. I got it assembled without much trouble by following the videos and the assembly guide. I did look ahead to make sure I was assembling the right parts and ended up fixing some of the instruction's errors before they became problems. For the parts that didn't depend the alignment of other parts, I tightened them well. For parts that do depend on others, I only tightened them firmly so that they can slide a bit when everything got fitted. After that, they all got a good tightening. Everything fits together well enough but there were situations where the holes are misaligned by a couple of millimeters but the parts did eventually tighten together slowly - don't force anything. The bed needs to have the four holes countersunk. A proper countersink bit or a large drill bit will get the job done. Cable management needs to be documented better. I ended up coiling everything together from the hot end to the PCB and loosely tied it mid-way to the left vertical rod. There's plenty of slack in the front for the bundle to move around. The rest of the cabling got loosely wrapped and rolled together and stays in the back out of the way. I'm thinking of adding a filament through the bundle so wires won't get kinked. The power supply that came with the kit didn't work. DOA. There wasn't any power coming out at all. Luckily, I had something that matched the required specs. A side note: I opened the PS and found that it was badly corroded and had patchwork done to it. In a way, I'm glad it didn't work. I followed the bed calibration instructions but found that the centre of the epoxy board isn't level with the four corners. I adjusted the corners to compensate for the centre. My first print was of a small project box I really needed - I mainly got this printer to print boxes for my electronics. I used a glue stick for adhesion and printed from the SD card. To my surprise, everything came out perfect. The sides of the box was smooth as silk, with the lid fitting dead on. The size of the box came out exactly as needed. Wow, that was easy! With that print out of the way, it's time to get to know the printer better: 1. Z-axis sense switch is misaligned and the small bolt, even with a nut at its end, will inconsistently slide off of the switch's roller - the nut turns as it touches the roller, and it also turns from the vibration of the printing. I ended up locking two nuts together at the end of the bolt and it's been working fine. 2. I have recycled power after each print so I don't know whether or not the Z-axis will be thrown off after the first print. 3. After homing, I generally need to do a bit of Z-axis alignment adjustment. It's probably because of the epoxy board being removed for cleaning and the glue stick pushing down when being applied. The springs don't seem to always respring to the same height - I need to squeeze-bounce them a bit. 4. I'm considering getting an aluminum or glass bed to replace the epoxy one. It would be nice to print on a flatter surface. 5. I've looked over other postings in this forum and found mods for this printer. Maybe a larger print surface would be worth the effort. 6. Auto Z-axis calibration would be nice but things are never that simple. 7. With the power off, moving the bed at any speed will cause the motor to generate enough power to light the LCD a bit. Is this a problem? The adventure continues. Thanks for making this printer available.
