Our First Assembly Workshop of the Brand New Original Prusa I3 MK2
(file source: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:246198)
It was last Thursday, we were impatiently waiting for our first set of Prusa i3 MK2! Not only did we spam the refresh link on the UPS tracking service every 5 minutes, but our e-mail inbox and our phone was constantly ringing up with clients on the other end asking us the status of their set they bought in the first batch of pre-orders. We decided the day before to print our own pieces of our two MK2 kits in the colors of Voxel Factory. Our Ditto PRO’s from Tinkerine were printing continually for nearly 24 hours with only the change of filaments and tape for a break. As for us, we were anxious to start building it so we had to calm our nerves by slicing each part and then printing them. Obviously that wasn’t enough to calm us. But at least we had the nice smell of PLA floating in the workshop.
Voxel Factory, much more than an online store!
On March 9th and 10th, Voxel Factory held its first on site I3 workshop. On the first day, all attendees completed assembly of a Prusa Mendel I3 with dual extruder on their own. By the second day, they were printing! Easily accessible, Voxel Factory is conveniently located by the Jacques-Cartier bridge and is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. Need printer parts or printing materials fast? Come by and see what's in stock. We'll help you make sure everything fits your needs perfectly. Buy on site and avoid shipping fees!
