Green with envy... I ordered 5 minutes after release and I'm still waiting for Pack 10 to arrive (fortunately already on its way)... I guess the packagers noticed I have too many partworks subscribed and they are staggering the deliveries so it's easier on my pocket ;-)

Hi All

Stage 3 begins with adding another limit switch and reinforcing plate to where the spool of filament will be attached. Next comes the fun part making up the enclosure box the tip here is to keep everything loosely done up until the jig as attached then tighten everything up in the prescribed sequence. Finally we attach the lead screw to the table. More soon.

Very nice Andy

I love how this 3D printer looks and I'm sure it would get lots of comments but I just wouldn't have the time to mess about with 3D designs. Looking forward to seeing more of your build though Cool

Hi Dave

They provide several items with the printer that you can print off like an phone case once I have used one or two of these to test it out it will be time to make some stuff for my models. Thanks for looking in and your comments.
