Great 3D printer for the Money! As most people have found out, this printer takes a long time to assemble. It took me about 6 hours to assemble it. There are no written instructions, but the included SD card has them in a .pdf file. There are also videos on Youtube that can help explain some of the more challenging pieces to put together. Print quality is pretty good, and the included filament helps you get started right away. In my case, only a 0.5kg roll of filament was delivered, however I reached out to eGoo and they quickly offered to send me a roll of filament, so great job there for making it right. I would definitely recommend this printer if this is your first time into 3D printing, but if you get frustrated easily, you may want to look into something pre-built.I have not tried out the auto-leveling sensor that was included yet, but it should be very handy once it is installed.

Great printer. Length:: 0:12 Mins This printer does really well.It’s fairly easy to assemble, some of the assembly is janky but to be expected at this price point. I had pretty good results my first print. I have since printed many upgraded parts for this printer, on this printer. Overall I’m very impressed by this kit. There is a lot of fine tuning to be done before you flip the switch (if you installed one). Necessary upgrades are a fused power switch, at least one mosfet but I used two (heat bed and extruder) and eventual soldiering of the hot bed connection. There are a ton of printable parts for these and some of those parts really do aid in print quality or safety. I have not yet used the self leveling portion of this printer. I have just been leveling my bed manually. I would recommend that you print a better cooling duct, belt tentioners, a power supply cover, mosfet, main board and Pi cases (if you go that route). I also recommend printing some braces for the…

Good printer, however, just get the basic A8 version without sensor. I like this printer. it should be noted, this version here includes 1/2 a kilo of average “chinesium” filament, as well as the auto leveling sensor.IMO, save your cash and just get the basic kit and get a full kilo of Hatchbox or other quality filament, and manually level the bed until you get a good QUALITY bed level sensor.This specific A8 is actually the “A8-L”. it includes a newer “v1.5” board. this means you may have trouble putting new firmware on it, and it includes firmware that is different from the standard A8. I am unable to flash my board and have ordered a USBASP to put a new bootloader on it. I’ve tried several other ways, including using the arduino IDE and Marlin setup.now, the main problem I have is with the sensor itself. with the stock bed, the sensor itself has a sensing distance of MAYBE 1mm at best. also, the included sensor mount is crap. it’s a 2mm thick piece of acrylic that will EASILY crack on you, even…
