Calvin Bensch II
from Simsbury, CT United States
The instructions were mostly concise. Finish time was about 8 hours. All hardware was included. I had additional pieces I used for a custom spool holder which I posted under my name at Thingiverse. The Repetier-Host software is user friendly. Fine tuning this machine both mechanically and via software is the key. I encountered quality prints by calibrating the heated bed before each print and wiping the tape clean with alcohol. From the software side, using SFACT slicing at .1mm layer thickness and .3 layer widths provided excellent printing. Anything less will result in failed prints. I am particularly impressed with the quality of the build. A note to all user - printing ABS is extremely difficult as the printer is not boxed in resulting in major warped prints. PLA prints beautifully with the extruder at 195 degrees, a feed rate of 90 and flow rate of 130. Follow these rules and you too will be very happy! I used Google Sketchup to design my prints and the Felix prints them well.
