First 3D Printer

So I bought a 3D printer kit from http://www.makerfarm.com/. Specially I got the MakerFarm 8″ i3v Prusa Kit.

Started the assembly following the provided online instructions and it three days I had the printer completely assembled.

Before your first print, there is your first extrusion.  So exciting!

Then after running some test code to make sure it doesn’t blow itself up, it is time to do the first print. I decided to do a 24mm cube.

Not to bad for the first print.

This was my first printer and over all my first experience has been great. I would defiantly recommend the MakerFarm Kits.
