Expected associates time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

Howdy all,

I accept been searching high and depression for user feedback on how long information technology takes users to do the assembly of a Prusa I3 MK2 kit. I haven’t been able to read this in manual. I would love to hear from you on how long information technology took y’all? Or general expectations on this matter…

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

I’d say v…10h is realistic. It all depends on how experienced someone is in building stuff like this.

Recomendation: Take your time and don’t mess with other peoples time!

Information technology’southward better do it in two steps than in one day. After 6h your concentration gets bad anyway and the frustration level will be much higher when something doesn’t work as expected. Utilise the online transmission and the additional pictures and comments. Y’all’ll observe much more data there than in the provided book.

3 evenings, probably three-4 hours each.

Never built annihilation earlier (except perchance some IKEA)

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

It took me 8 hours to consummate the printer assembly up until turning on the printer.

What’south making me a bit boring is the y axis frame adjustment and carefully reading the manual since this is my about expensive printer however (after geeetech i3b) and don’t want to ruin it =D

I gotta say that it is probably 10 hours including the initial scale of y axis to be perpendicular (which tin can never be achieved) and software auto calibration process. Some other took me almost an hour of assembly is mounting the electronic because information technology is hard to mountain the board to the case, not to mention the example to the frame (before mk2s parts)

I would suggest you to download the assembly instruction pdf so you can refer the moving-picture show more clearly since the one in the book, you can barely run into the figures

Re: Expected assembly fourth dimension for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

I found the prusa a lot easier to build than the geeetech i3b. With the Prusa. I had the build instructions for what was on the demote. And all parts wete bagged in sections
Where as the geeetech. Had components bagged past size. . And the instructions seemed to be for a unlike model. .

Both printers worked. Just when i bought another printer. It was too a Prusa… shame i missed the cutoff for the S upgrade…

My prusa build was about 7 hours.

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

I spent vii hours Mon night assembling my MK2 Southward, the instructions were pretty spot on. Be certain the read the comments. Have time getting everything foursquare early on to avoid rework. I spent most v hours calibrating yesterday after assembly, if I would have thoroughly read the forums on adjusting the live Z I probably would have been able to drib that number to a couple of hours.

Every bit others have said, take your fourth dimension, but don’t over think it as well much, it’s a pretty piece of cake assembly compared to others and was a lot easier than my X-Carve.

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

For me, without any experience of building such a thing, information technology was 2 days. I would say outset day about 7 hours to make the rough assembly, 2d day about 4 hours to calibrate (with some fine tuning of construction) and set to print (including reading the brochure virtually basics in 3D printing).
But information technology was during Christmas, when man must do much more than other things.
Need to say, that I had to stop after 7 hours and leave it for the second day, the concentration was already bad. Things similar cable management of the extruder part and rambo board assembly, which are done simply at the end, made me little chip crazy :-)ยจ
Next twenty-four hour period with clear listen it was much better to finish and calibrate.

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

Heheh, talking about the geeetech i3b associates, it took me 12 hours to complete it it is due to complications with the parts and transmission. That was my very starting time printer and tried to assemble information technology carefully instead the manual was off with the parts supplied. Merely the printer worked great, the heatbed is expert also can reach from nigh 30’c to 100’c in about 7 minutes same like the mk42 bed.

Main reason I got the mk2 is the skew compensation. I likewise tried to make the y-axis as perpendicular every bit possible simply it proves me impossible to become i ๐Ÿ˜€

Re: Expected assembly time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

This was my offset time building something similar this. I built it in about 12 hours, over a catamenia of four days. I took my time (spend about 2 – 3 hours a day on day 2 and 3).

I found the kickoff part (Y-axis) the most fourth dimension consuming.

Re: Expected associates time for Prusa I3 MK2 Kit

Took me about viii hours, all in i go (short breaks hither and at that place). I assembled a Geeetech Pro C last fall and this was a MUCH amend experience than that.

BTW, I got perpendicular axes.
