Woo Hoo, on my second print

It has been a struggle.  Fedex dropped my kit off at a Dollar General and it disapeared for a week.  With the help of Prusa, fedex leaned on dollar general and my kit was 'found'.

Biggest issue I had is I didn't get the belt pushed in far enough in the extruder assembly so I failed calibration on X due to belt tracking.  Ran it once after I fixed that and it passed cal.  Then I lashed up the wires and failed cal.  Didn't orient cable tie properly so X traveled 1 mm or so short. 

Once I got the nozzle low enough, I printed the whistle.  First print ever, came out great.  Working on my second print now. 

I am so happy I didn't go cheap and buy something off of Amazon.

I was chatting to someone recently who bought a cheap clone and he said he's spent so much upgrading practically all the parts he could have bought the Prusa in the first place.

I actually have a clone.  I have spent zero on replacement parts and it works fine.  The one thing I might have mistakenly replaced was the heartbreak.  I had two hotends on the table and I might have installed the wrong one.  When I get back from holiday, I need to check and see if both hotends have an all-metal construction.
