#MakiBox A6 Beta 00 Assembled!

2022-01-29 23:33 by Jonathan Buford (comments: 21)

A little over 2 hours to be ready to start testing.

2 hour build time, yeah! Lost video from the build, boo!

So, very solid, some tweaks to parts need to be made before test printing and sending out the other betas.

Looking like 4 hour build time is possible for most people following step by step instructions, but more advanced builders can probably get in at 1-2 hours once we have everything documented well and work out the flow of the build to avoid some of the backsteps with this first build. 

A power screw driver is recommended, probably cuts down 30-45 minutes of the build time easily.

More photos and other stuff to follow tomorrow.

Wow. 2 hrs time is very good. reprap takes much longer than that.

I have 2 questions, (1) where is the ABS wheels fit in?
(2) Is pellet extruder come in differenc box, by saying, we need to extrude PLC into wheel first before printing?

Thanks

James

Hoping all screws are either Philips, Torx, or socket head....ideally one flavor of driver for all screws in the box.

Given some people probably aren't very tool proficient, slot head screws are just begging for scratches, marring, and sticking a screwdriver through their hands.

I STILL have not had my order confirmed or sorted out...
