Well, after having DHL deliver to my home address instead of my work address (changed mid delivery) I finally got my M200. I had to wait almost 4 hours at the depot (and it was freezing in there) but it was worth it. Here are my first impressions: The packing was amazing, really well thought out. I really like the little tool kit too. I have all of those tools already but most users will not and you can get started without having to go buy stuff. The quality and construction is even better than everyone has described. I am a tool and die maker and am quite fussy, just ask my wife. I promised myself I would not buy another printer that used printed parts for functional components. The M200 is made solid with full bearing supports on all the shafts and rod ends. I spent at least 15 minutes just looking at it with a flashlight and am still looking at it as I type. The XY carriage is rock solid but still moves smoothly and no play what so ever in the Z stage. All the cables are neatly held in place and everything just looks like it was designed properly. This is not an expensive RepRap printer. It is a well priced excellent quality printer. I am really impressed with the spool mount that shipped with the printer and can’t wait to print my first “thing” tomorrow-I am really tired what can I say. At this point I am so impressed that I won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t even print :).
Thanks Zortrax team for an amazing piece of work,
