Sweet, I've been looking at these since they first came out, but they never seemed to have a resolution that was good enough. However, that is a great build, well done. Once you get it "tweaked" I look forward to seeing the results.

I'm in the process of making a Prusa too however things aren't going that well. I have an older electronics setup (gen3) and an older Makerbot extruder, which aren't terribly compatible. I hope I will eventually finish.

Good job on yours!

Callum

Looks sweet! Nice job building it up.

We have one of these and an Up! printer at the place I'm interning at. I gotta admit, the parts the Up produces are very impressive.

Great job with the build, it looks really good. How hard was it to assemble? Also would it be possible to print a support structure like the up! printer? It seems like this would be more of a software and less of a hardware issue.

sorry for the late response. a support material can be used. there is an option for it in the software but i dont know how to use it. It wasnt too hard to assemble but the wiring was a bit tricky. I did have to modify many of the parts so they could fit other parts. It is very time consuming to get a working printer though. You have to do a lot of trouble shooting and I actually had another problem after making the video.
