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

It took several days to assemble. And it did need some tuning. But overall the printer works quote good. Some noteworthy advice.... I had difficulty running the printer above a speed of 125 on any setting,..it kept skipping. Drop your speed down below 80 on all movememts amd it works vreat. Also, the machime initially would not recognize the sd card. But if you go to the place in the program where you would tap the button to select the card, then pull the card out, stick it back in, and then it reads the card properly.

FT-5 R2 is a fantastic 3D printer.The ACM parts are a nice and needed upgrade.Print well right out of the box with a little tuning and without any upgrades other than adding a part cooling fan. It's a far better choice than an i3 clone, which you would likely have to upgrade right out of the box to get the same quality prints you can from the FT-5. And honestly, building it yourself is a better option than just getting a printer you can pour out of the box and go. The more you know about your printer's guts, the easier tuning and diagnosing print issues will be. You won't regret buying the FT-5 R2
Folgertech FT-5 R2 Large Scale 3D Printer Kit
If you need and easy 3D printer and don't really care for learning all about it. Then the CR-10 is a good choice, but if you want higher quality, and much more potential and to learn your 3D printer/s inside-and-out then go for a FT-5.Especially now with the R2 out.
