Can you or some one else measure the height of the hexagonal bed spacers that came with the kit?

If anyone has the measurements of the spacers, I love to have them.  

I am going close with one more finding that would drive me to order an Orginal Prusa Mini kit over this one.  I started printing and noticed the prints are just not right in the center.  I thought the bed appears to be not level, but that is not it.  The screws are too tall attacking the heat bed so it pushes the sheet up a little.

Charles,

I didn't have a spare so i measured one on my mini.  It measured 5.8mm. I hope this helps.

I am actually happy with the quality.  I need a little more fine-tuning, but not bad.

I have tested this board (just board) on the Mini for fun. Works perfectly so far, almost identical to the original. The board version is not 1.0.2 but 1.0.0.
Let's see how it works in the long run:

This set of controller board and display are on sale for Black Friday.  I have been printing for a week with good success.  It led me to order another Orginial Prusa Mini.  I will say that FSTEC Mini does not come with an all-metal hotend.  If you remember in this thread that I had an all-metal installed on mine.   I remember pulling out two hotends and I install the one from my storage and not the kit.  This errantly made me think it was all-metal.  When I dug through the drawer, I found the other hotend and it is not all-metal.  I realized the mistake this week.

What exactly is the difference between the original all metall hotend and the one that came with the kit?

It's jist a metal pipe with thread at the end, PTFE runs all the way through. I described it in this post: https://forum.prusaprinters.org/forum/general-discussion-announcements-and-releases/prusa-mini-clone-from-china/paged/12/#post-293659 see comparison between photos here and blueprint on GitHub.

BTW I am very happy they (Prusa) offer official DIY kit now.

The assembly is no problem even without instructions. You only have to proceed carefully, as with the MK series. But I would use a different extruder. The filament sensor is not necessarily needed. And I am curious what the super new superpinda will offer.

I have to concur.  I think the Mini Kit from Pursa is gonna be a big seller.

I got another clone.  Reportedly it is one of 25 from Triangle Labs.  I am not sure I like it.  It has a V6 hotend and ti came assembled.
