You got your box to build your box, now it is time to put it together and start printing.

Before you get started, in addition to your kit, you will probably want to get these items together:

  • Standard "Kettle Plug" type power cord (same as for most desktop computers, image to follow)
  • Micro USB cord for connecting your box to a computer or other host device.(Image to follow.)
  • Plastic/Wire Cutters for trimming off any excess plastic from parts and cutting filament when printing. (Image to follow.)
  • Long nose/needle nosed pliers for holding things during assembly or for holding and grabbing hot stuff during printing.(Image to follow.)
  • Optional - White Lithium Grease or similar plastic friendly grease for the drive screws and bearing surfaces.
