My next 3d printer showed up a few days ago and i’m 3/4 of the way through the build. The Makergear Prusa isn’t quit as easy to assemble as the Makerbot and it takes a lot of searching to figure out what needs to happen next.  I’m about to start on the electronics and still trying to find the pin out for the stepper motors. I’ll have to do a little more reading, but hopefully I’ll have it up and running by the end of the week. If any of you decide to go this route, adjustments are a pain, I spent hours trying to get things to move smoothly and ended up replacing all of the bearings with . Once I added proper linear bearings things started to work out much better. You save money on the Makergear Prusa but you’ll have to spend a lot more time sorting things out.

Hopefully once this is finished I’ll be able to add a few more things to the Noob Store. I’ll keep you posted.
