Assembling this and the enclosure was almost child's play. Was a bit surprised at first at how many screws were left, but I guess they will be used with the CNC board and holding bits as I've double checked everything.
Build quality is 5 or even 6 stars, looks and feels a premium product.
Now the not so good experience: coming from NO 3D printing background, trying to get started could do with some guidance - I would imagine this to be a common requirement, that is, if you're an experienced 3D tinkerer already you can get away with using a cheaper 100-200 dollars 3D printer and dealing with all the tweaks needed. For this one, the starting steps are literally 3 images with one sentence each: insert filament, load the software (still mentions SnapMaker3D which either is Windows only or even no longer used as I didn't have that option when I went to the download site on my Mac), and generate g-code.
I've done that, after calibrating the print bed, and for whatever reason it would try to start the print a good 4 or 5 cm above the bed. I've checked all the cables and everything was going to the right place, re-calibrated it, tried again, same thing. This would happen both with g-code files generated from the SnapMakerJs and saved to the provided USB pen drive or using the printer directly via an USB cable.
Eventually I decided to remove the entire thing from the enclosure and try just the printer - same problem. So I triple or fourth checked the connections and all seemed OK but I've disconnected all anyway, loosened the screws on the controller (as I remembered seeing something on the internet about that) and then plugged everything back and it did now finally get a print done, almost perfectly!
Failed to hold the PLA on the bed on one side of the calibration cube, but as the rest did catch on, it did complete a good quality cube (with a slightly dented edge where id didn't catch the bed).
One final criticism: I don't know how much the laser engrav...
I haven’t received my order yet
The material for the 3D printer does not work, despite following all the trouble shooting steps. Software is not intuitive. Don't by this!!!!

My parcel has been sitting at a Fedex in Tamworth NSW depot for 2 weeks with no scheduled delivery date. Considering the huge amount I paid for delivery, am I also expected to travel 250 Km to pick the package and travel back on my own time ?
