    Might want to check the 110v/220v toggle if you haven't already on the PSU (assuming it has one, if it doesn't you may have to get one that you know is 110v to be safe.

    Probably going to fix it before you actually print, but that X-axis alignment is triggering me.

    lol x is unlevel because of the dumb way you have to assemble the z. silly printer, going to get it wired, level the x level the y then run a print tonight if time allows. (needs to be tonight, type a comes in tomorrow)

    front page :D lol I didn't do any pictures of assembly other than "end result" because their assembly instructions are actually decent with good pictures (I'll post a link to them).

    sad as it makes me to say it..I do have a spare used E3D V6 laying around that may get throwing into this machine just because....I'm at 50 hours of print time on it and having no issues. Dont know that I can wait for it to die lol

    You say that like ... it is a bad thing?
    Dude... that is my modus operandi :
    -new printer (X)
    -Install E3D (X)


    *cursing optional while learning new printer.

    More pictures, still stock so far. .1mm layers, 60 mm/s IMG_o70tyk.jpg 20170405_154638.jpg 20170405_154638.jpg
    at this point I've determined the stringing is unable to be handled due to the cheap hotend and the cheap extruder gear. This isn't a big deal as I've got an extra E3D and I've got a bag of extruder gears, so maybe I'll get around to "upping" the performance of this cheapo printer with some parts I have laying around.

    But I will say the detail and quality other than the stringing suprised the crap out of me. I'd recommend it as a 2nd kit for someone that wanted to play around. Its big enough to print some "every day" pla prints and possible big enough to print some spare parts if you level it appropriately and add the right build surface. (This is my opinion based off the kit I built, not a sales pitch! Dont get that confused :D )
