Got my folgertech ft-5 on wednesday. BIG shipping box for a BIG printer!
Keep us updated on progress and print quality!
Yes would like to see in action and print quality.
Got it all built and printing yet?
here's a nice overview, not mine though.
step #1 - frame
Wow that is big.
I am building an FT5 right now, and I can find the baseplate fan anywhere. What package was yours in?
in the bag with the hotend.
Are all the black pieces injection-moulded plastic?
And the result is nice and rigid?
laser cut melamine, similar to the plywood bigbox.
the frame is aluminum, it's pretty rigid so far. it will have to be, since they plan to release a CNC upgrade for the FT-5.
2/3 finished, and then what shows up on my doorstep... a bigbox.
one thing is for sure, the FT-5 build is not for beginners.
