Give yourself plenty of space and ensure your work area is clean. Dust and dirt are a 3D printer’s worst enemy.
All printed parts have been printed on various RepRap machines from suppliers within the RepRap community. Despite the fact that these machines are highly tuned RepRap 3D printers, some holes and features may need a little fettling to get the best performance from the eMAKER Huxley. This is especially true for the Igus bushings used for the Z axis.
Before you start the build, please ensure you have all the components as listed on the packing list included in the kit. If anything is missing, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We understand that people may want to change aspects of the machines design, and in fact we encourage this as it is one of the benefits of open source development. Before changing anything, please be aware that the eMAKER Huxley has been designed to maximise the build volume relative to the the machine’s footprint, and as such many of it’s components fit closely to others. So consider your changes carefully before you try to implement them. And when you find improvements, please tell us so that we can include them in future kits, and so that existing owners can upgrade their own machines.
BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO ASSEMBLE ANY PART OF THE eMAKER HUXLEY 3D PRINTER, PLEASE READ THE BUILD INSTRUCTIONS FULLY AND ENSURE YOU UNDERSTAND THEM. Although all parts are covered by warranty, this will be invalidated by not following the build instructions.
The eMAKER Huxley is a robust RepRap machine once assembled, however it does require a certain amount of care during assembly. If in doubt, force is usually not the answer! There are many ways to get support and advice, see the Get Support section below.
