Although the ultimaker is a remarkable nice machine, I doesn't fit my budget. So after some browsing I ended up on the 3ders.org website that contains a 3D printer price comparison list that gets updated from time to time. So I went for the cheapest and closest option (to keep shipping costs as low as possible): RepRap France - eMotion Tech. I went for their Prusa Mendel precision kit. So after paying and waiting a box finally arrived at my doorstep.
I went quickly through the box, to see if most parts were there. I know some plates are still on their way, but nothing stops me from already starting the build
There seems to be 5 footed frame vertex and only 1 frame vertex instead of 4 footed and 2 regulars, but that only impacts the looks, not functionality. Hopefully that will be the only surprise I'll encounter in this build, *fingers crossed*.
So this is the result of 1 hour of spare time :-)
