Hi All

I built a Prusa i3 box-frame printer from parts last christmas, but unfortunately have never fully been able to utilise it. It has always run well from the get go, and I only had to do a rough calibration to get decent prints. Printed off a few things without any hassle at all
With a few new things brewing on the horizon, I think its time to let it go to a good home. I am based in Wellington, haven't investigated shipping. Thought I would ask on here before putting on Trademe.

Some fine tuning may be required on Z- axis to bring it square to the Y-axis, and I have yet to perfect the correct start-up extrusion rate to get the filament flowing smoothly for the start of small prints. Other than that, it runs like a dream. Looking for cost price ($600) or best offer.

Specs: Prusa i3 Rework variant, 3mm

- 16mm ply box-frame
- M10 threaded rod X/Y axis
- M8 linear rails
- 500W PSU
- RAMPS 1.4 + MEGA 2560 R3
- Wade's extruder (Gregstruder variant)
- MK2 heated printbed
- A4988 steppers
- NEMA 17 motors 1.7A
- Plastics are injection molded ABS (excepting complicated geometries)
- official J-head Mk V-BV, 3mm filament, 0.4mm orifice.
- GT2 pulley for printbed.
- near- full sapphire blue PLA roll from DiamondAge (kept in plastic for moisture control.

also comes with spare parts as pictured:
- 200x200mm glass bed
- 2x mechanical endstops
- kapton tape
- painters tape
- A4988 stepper
- 8x LM8UU linear bearings
- Sprung bolt for use in gregstruder
- 5x RBG wire connectors (for endstops etc)

Let me know if you are interested, or know someone who is. Cheers
