I'm nearing the end of my build and I have a quick warning to everyone: Do not wire and solder according to the diagram in the PDF, it will not work. You need to figure out the stepper wiring based on this http://reprap.org/wiki/Stepper_wiring. Unfortunately, I had already wired, soldered, and heatshrinked based on the diagram, so I have a lot of undoing to do. I spent quite some time thinking it was irreparable too because the steppers just jerked around loudly with the incorrect wiring.
Also, you will have to perform significant cleanup on the printed parts.
On another note, did anyone else not get the heated bed? I've emailed massdrop about it and they forwarded it to techshop about a week ago. I did say no need to rush, but I haven't received anything back yet. I'll probably follow up soon, but I'd like to know if others are having this issue or have had it resolved.
Also I'm pretty sure I was missing some minor hardware parts. I think I'm going to be able to get away with the minor missing parts, hopefully I'll know for sure later today(I think I'm getting it finally finished).
Has anyone on this drop finished theirs yet?
