We purchased a Rigidbot during their Kickstarter campaign last year, and it arrived in the middle of last week. It took 8.5 months longer than projected, but frankly by Kickstarter standards that’s not bad.
Since it was so close to the end of the kids’ school year, I saved it as a project for the weekend. I spent Father’s Day assembling our new 3D printer with the 13 year old. I think we both had quite a bit of fun! We finished basic assembly late last night — so no test print yet. This evening, we plan on tidying up the cabling, performing calibration, and running our first test print. Pictures and comments to follow.
