High quality extrusions with nice finish. Problem is BOM does not match any instructional materials referenced. The printer is narrower than discussed on web.
I wanted to take a printer I had, A sad JGAurora A5, and one I destroyed in a fit of rage *Anet E12, cough,cough* and some parts I had, and make a hypercube. Everywhere I looked online would either bring me to China or Zyltech. Well that was a no brainer. 4 days later I had the box. What I liked was the tape placed on every face of the extrusions, so any metal shavings would be stuck to the sticky side...smart! I doubt the ones from China would have come that way. Took me about 2 and a half hours to assemble the frame, the cats were a lot of help. A hint, as there is no instructions. When put together right, you will have 2 440mm squares connected buy the 600mm pieces. so 440x440x640.
Now, lets just say, if you have the music up, and the beer flowing, and cats are batting your corner pieces, and laying in the middle of the work area, and when you get done, you have 2 rectangles....you did it wrong. But morning and copious amounts of java will get it sorted out quickly. I will say, if you are looking to make things a little easier, just buy the dang complete kit. However, if you enjoy having to remix, or make models to fit parts you have, then take the wandering path I am weaving.
