First Build - Got Kit Cheap
April 19, 2020 12:07AM
So picked up a I3-LS450 printer really cheap at a garage sale. New in box, never been opened. For $30.00

Building it has been a challenge, because a lot of guides are not correct and a missing several steps. Can anyone point me to the right location to get build information that is correct or a least to get me over my latest hurdle.

I attached a photo of the printer I found. The box just says Let's Print Model I3-LS450.

Look forward to getting this built and testing it out.

Hey $30 is a good find. Have fun tinkering with that thing.

Searched the web all I found was an advertisement here

I could not find any Assembly Manuals or videos. This web site it says that there is a detailed CD that is included with the 3D Printer.
Here it gives a little more information though not nearly enough.

Have any question post we will be here to help.

Sometimes they come with a file on a micro SD card. The card also has the firmware etc. The firmware should already be flashed its just a backup.

+1 for the micro-SD card, or also maybe a USB stick or mini-CD.

Otherwise, I'd scout AliExpress for the same printer photo... you might be able to find instructions that way. Or use Tineye.com to search the Net for that photo.

Also try this forum which is for Prusa variants... maybe maybe someone will recognise the photo there.
