Prusa i3 MK2 Assembly – Part 1

By | January 31, 2017

I received my Prusa i3 MK2 3D printer kit in and started assembly.  I have never used nor even seen a 3D printer in person, so I figure this will be at least a little challenging to get up and running.  So far, I have only completed the y-axis.  This step took about 3 hours to complete, though one hour of that was fixing (and then re-fixing) a mistake.  Looking back, it was sort of funny, since I thought I had a part backwards, so I “fixed” it, realized later that it was correct the first time, and had to return it the way I had it originally.  I used only the tools that came with the kit and so far, it doesn’t seem to be too bad.  I’m recording the process and will see if I can make a time lapse video as well when it is finally completed.
