What do you need to know before you build your 3D printer?

Desktop 3D printers have been in market for many years now, they all started from RepRap Project – The lowest cost 3D printer in the world. There are many versions of RepRap 3D printer in the market right now. Here I want to share some tips for new Desktop 3D printer user.

How do you know if you are capable to build the printer?

  • people, who are able to assemble the furniture kit from IKEA

  • people, who are willing to fix small home hardware problem.

  • people, who are willing to spend at least 3 hours on the printer kit assembly.

  • people, who are willing to read the assembly manual.

Why do you buy the kit from Mixshop?

  • we start making and selling the kit since the Original Mendel

  • we provide the lowest price for our customer

  • we provide great customer support
