Just looked that up. That sounds like the way to go. When do you start, because I really want to follow this build.

They have a good Facebook page too, and yes I'm asking about your kit. Again, I'm not sure what I'd do with it, but I really want one.

Rick the 3d printer is just another way of making things. It is additive manufacturing rather than material removal. 3d printing s a lot of fun. it takes some time and commitment to climb the learning curve. Building a kit will help understand how a printer is build. People are making, modding and repairing many things with the process it is often and intermediate step. And can be used for pattern making.
You can download the build manual firmware and software before you even commit to purchasing a kit. If you like I can start a build thread. And it seems you are interested.
It seems they are very eager to offer tech support as well.

After a long weekend the I3 2020 is almost completed and working . A few glitches but mostly successful. And probably a few bugs to work out. it is together . The firmware installed all axes moving the heaters heat etc. the extruder is sitting on the bed. And the lcd needs a case and needs installation .

I did not take time to do a build log. I will get more info up when I have time.

After to weeks it is actually printing. Probably still needs some adjusting.
