Thanks everyone for all the shipping updates on the Mini+ Kits.  I enjoyed reading them while waiting for my unit to ship.  Now it is time to post my shipping info:

  • Ordered Jan. 4
  • Received shipping notice Apr. 19
  • Received Mini+ Kit Apr. 21 (Texas)

Amazing how we can ship items around the world in just a couple of days!

Mine was sent also during Monday and it is still stuck in Poland. DHL is saying it will arrive early next week to here Finland. I guess the distance is not the only thing that matters in shipping.

Thanks to everyone who posted his/her shipping notification on this thread. It was really helpful for me to estimate when my unit might be shipping.

Now it's my turn to let you know that my unit (Mini+ Kit Black/Orange, with Filament Sensor, only Smooth Sheet, Prusament PLA sample), which I ordered on 8th of January, was shipped today, so I had to wait 14 weeks and 6 days. Now I have to see how long the shipping will take. I'm located in Germany and opted for shipping with Hermes. I will give you another update once my printer arrived.

Again, thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread. If you already received your printer, I wish you happy printing. If you are one of the people who are still waiting for their printer, I hope that your printer will ship in the near future.

How long is the average assembly for the Mini+ Kit. I received mine on Monday and started to build it on Tuesday but after ~3-4 Hours am not done with Section 2. YZ - Axis Assembly.

assembly is not a race, 
careful assembly may take longer, but it generally gives much better results.

That's amazingly quick!

Now, I didn't pay for express shipping. If you wait 15 weeks what's a few extra days of shipping, right? Well, I regret that now....

 

Anyway, got my notice on the 20th and today (23rd) it arrived to Sweden, to the import depot 20km from my house. Out dear local postal service expects it to take two business days to get to my place.

Knowing them, today doesn't count so I expect it to arrive Tuesday at the earliest. A fraction of the way to Texas but at least double the shipping time 😭

Then again, I don't have a lot of time to assemble it until Thursday anyway, so it might be easier not to have to look at it all weekend 😅

I would highly recommend you get the base printer working and you develop good skills before you even consider adding and modifications like the Bondtech.

May i ask your thoughts on not adding the extruder (not sure on the heatbreak but shippingcost made it sensible to add it as well) at buildtime?

The only thing i dislike (design-wise atleast beforehand) is the lack of manual feed thru the original printed extruder.

I even considered using one of my spare clone-titans instead, but those are not good at any flex.

 

I always load/swap filament by hand with the nozzle heated so i can "feel" if the nozzle it hot/stable enough.

I'm going to stick with the 0.4 nozzle at start tho. I have larger nozzle in the order as well.

Just placed my order the other day. Currently have an Ender 3 Pro that has cost me far too much time and money in upgrades. The plan was to wait until something new (outside of the Mini) came along. But I'm ready to move into the Prusaverse before I spend another dime on Ender upgrades/fixes, and the Mini+ should be a great 2nd printer to the XL or MK4 or whatever comes next.

I didn't expect to write a second answer to this thread only three days later, but the printer already arrived yesterday. The printer was shipped on Thursday morning and arrived two days later on Saturday at noon. I didn't expect that it will only take two days for shipping so that was a pleasant surprise. Now I have to assemble it, but this will probably take some time since I have some other things to do as well, but I guess it's better to take the time and don't rush during the assembly.

I am suddenly pleasantly surprised by the local post, my kit is ready for pickup a full day earlier than I thought it would be  🙂 Now to assemble and discover if it is all I hoped or all I feared, probably a bit of both 😉 

Before ordering the mini I had a firm idea of what I wanted in a printer, and it is pretty much the opposite of the mini 😀 It should be a core-XY cube style printer with an all metal direct drive extruder. Well, me and my brother have started building one of those. Not sure if it will ever get done though, so many design changes and restarts it hasn't even left the CAD drawings yet 🙂

The lone Z-axis still worries me a bit, it looks so wobbly. But it's hard to argue with the quality of prints that has been posted. Will have to use all my willpower not to fix what is not broken and not do too many "upgrades" before seeing that it would solve an actual problem. I mean, I love tinkering with the printer but this one was bought to get some actual printing done as a difference to the mess I have now.

Hello! Thanks everyone for sharing informations about dates, it helps alot with estimating.

I bought my Mini+ Kit on 7th January, still waiting for dispatch. I asked on chat about it, it should be send this or next week. I cannot wait to finally print something 😍 

I wonder why I'm still waiting, as some people's kits was already send 🤔 I have version with both steel sheets, without filament sensor, but I also ordered 3 spools of Prusament.

Got my shipping notice today (Apr 26). Ordered the kit on Jan 10. Got the smooth surface plate only, with a filament sensor, and 1 roll of filament.

Getting excited about trying out those haribos 😛 and the printer too I guess..
