Evaluate this kit?

Evaluate this kit?
February 09, 2014 08:29PM
Looking to buy a complete kit and I found this one - [cgi.ebay.com]

Can you give your opinion of the design and components included? Also, can you tell which design this is based on? Anyone know anything about the seller? They sell printer ink, so I'm guessing you can't expect much in terms of support in setting it up. Thanks

It looks like a chinese clone. I personally would never buy one, instead build a more known model like the mendel90 could be a good choice, but I don't know if you are into dual extrusion. The mendel90 doesn't have that.

The filament driver is missing the spring tensioner for the idler.
Looks like they are trying to save a few cents at the customers expense.
Might be more shortcuts taken.

I would avoid it personally.

it looks lie to get it to work they hat to remove the tension sprint, and apply pressure with bolt, and into a poorly printed plastic part. this smells of something not completely tested. know what you are buying, and purchase appropriately.
