What am I going to do wrong? New Duo!
« on: December 27, 2013, 06:50:58 PM »
My Bukobot Duo kit (first 3D printer) should be arriving today.  What common problem/issues do I need to look out for?  Do you guys have any tips & tricks that will help me through the building process?

Thanks a bunch,
Michael

My brother, Dad, and I built it over a weekend. We used these partial instructions: http://bukobot.com/bukobot-assembly-documentation and had a few extra parts at the end. Searching this forum and a post or two helped with those extras. I think it was just spacers for the limit switches and synchro mesh, and a handful of unmarked pieces that are used for cable management.

Referencing jits build instructions for the V1 would have been very helpful during our build. You can find them here: http://bukobot.com/jitsbuild

I also recommend returning loose items to their original bags until they are needed. Often, we had to look at the bag names to figure out where the parts were supposed to go. You may work on one area and then have to come back to it, once something else is finished.

Thanks fiya,
My build went just fine, and I'm having a ball printing stuff.

Should be receiving my Bukobot Duo any day now.

I need to get more allen wrenches, though. Should I get a metric or SAE set?

Thanks!

Never mind. Just reviewed the parts list that was added a couple days ago and everything is metric.  :)
