Disclaimer:


This is a kit of components for assembly into a 3D Printer by the end user. Building and using the printer is potentially very dangerous as it involves electricity and high temperatures.

Building the printer will require a certain amount of physical dexterity, common sense and a thorough understanding of what you are doing. We have provided fully comprehensive build documentation to enable you to build your Folger Tech 3D Printer Kit in a safe manner.

However ultimately we cannot be responsible for your health and safety whilst building or operating the printer, with that in mind be sure you are confident with what you are doing prior to commencing with building or buying. Read all of the manual to enable you to make an informed decision. 

Building and operating involves electricity, so all necessary precautions should be taken and adhered to, the printer runs on 12V supplied by a certified power supply, so you shouldn't ever have to get involved with anything over 12V but bear in mind there can still be high currents involved and even at 12V they shouldn't be taken lightly. 

High temperatures are involved with 3D Printing, the Extrusion nozzle of the hot end runs at 230°C, the heated bed runs a 110°C and the molten plastic extruded will initially be at around 200°C, so special care and attention should be made when handling these parts of the printer during operation. 

We wouldn't recommend leaving your printer running unattended.We cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage, threat, hurt or other negligent result from either building or using the printer

I bought FT-5, and it's my first printer. I didn't find the assembly bad at all and I'm getting very good prints with not a lot of fiddling and adjustment. While a lot of people upgrade the melamine parts to aluminum or printed parts, that's something you can do over time, it's not necessary out of the gate. There is a fantastic community that can help you out. If you want a FT-5, don't hesitate for a second.

It is the most versatile kit and best value for your money. Have spent a good amount of time redesigning and rebuilding the machine with the mods. So far I am very happy with how its going.
Folger Tech FT-5 Large Scale 3D Printer Kit
This printer is amazing it's build plate is huge for the cost and the accuracy and speed is insane it does take a little tweaks to make perfect but for even a novice it's a great start to learn how to build kits and print my only recommendation is to take an inventory before you start so that you know what's what because it gets a little confusing when you run the middle of the build and you don't know the difference between a M3 screw and a M4 screw!
Folger Tech FT-5 Large Scale 3D Printer Kit
I researched a LOT before buying an FT-5. I highly recommend 3DPrintersBay for anyone wanting to buy one. Very fast response, very fast shipping. Two thumbs up..! As for the FT-5 itself, I am still in the process of building it. My comments on the manual and documentation in general so far are: 1) They should have included an SD card with ALL of the documentation, software, and photos that they possibly could 2) The itemized list of laser cut parts is incorrect (there are two FT5s, not one, and one FT13, not two) 3) Some of the assembly order simply does not make sense. It is much easier to do some things differently. Anyway, it is a solid kit, well made, and aside from a few minor things (mostly due to my personal preferences), I would definitely buy it again and recommend both it and 3DPrintersBay highly!
Folger Tech FT-5 Large Scale 3D Printer Kit
I would highly recommend this printer as you won't find a cheaper printer with this size build volume and this well designed for anything close to this price point. If you are considering buying a 3D printer take a look at this one
