I've had a look at the building instructions and they don't seem too complicated, just time consuming.
At least the plumbers and sparkies will be employed They didn't go into it only certain professionals foresee more law suits in the future there are at least 200 make-a-box of actual make-a-box brand for hobby and personal use in America alone at the moment because it's all open source.
Hi walshy002000, I have built a Maker Bot here in Melbourne.
The models at hackerspace are a bonus – seem to be some cool models on there :) As long as you are a fairly handy person it's not too difficult to assemble. Getting consistent prints of a high quality is an art and takes a lot of time and effort. Everyone's build will be slightly different and so the recommended settings aren't always the best ones.
As for how much I use it, the answer is not much – mainly because I work full-time and study part-time and so during semester I don't have a lot of spare time for screwing around trying to improve my prints.
Getting consistent prints of a high quality is an art and takes a lot of time and effort. I was looking at getting one too, id love to assemble it however the calibration and consistent prints seem to be the problem from everything ive read.
