Finished building my first 3D printer very late on Sunday night, from this excellent kit from Nop Head. Went through the testing, levelling, and calibration procedures, and even got to try my first couple of prints, using the Android example, pre-sliced for the 2.85mm green PLA that comes with the kit.

The first attempt, although just about recognisable, clearly had some issues in the x-axis. A little investigation and I found it to be a loose grub screw holding the pulley to the x-axis motor shaft. The second print I’m really happy with.
