Folgertech FT-i3 Mega Build

Post by LePaul » November 27th, 2018, 12:21 pm

First, note that I changed this section of the forum from Folger Tech FT-5 to FolgerTech Large Scale 3D printers...since they have several!

I've had this kit for a few months and am finally putting it together! Between life, school, work...it took some time to get here!

I've been live streaming the build as I go! Here's the first section...and I have already gone up to a 4th video, which you can access from YouTube

This is a different FT? Or the same one that has taken you a few years to assemble?

Why the long assembly time? Do you have to forge your own components from raw materials excavated in your back yard?

Just curious, as my Hictop 3DP-17 took me 4 days (working evenings only) to assemble, and all the screws were in a large bag (1 evening spent just sorting them).
