Thanks again - after further reading, it looks like the first spool or two will be used to make structural braces for the frame.

I did laugh, reading some of the negative comments on Amazon about the frame flexing etc.. and it never occurred to them that they had the tool in front of them to fix the problems they were moaning about.

That's one of the reasons I was set on getting an aluminium frame: I didn't want any problems in my prints due to a flexible or brittle frame. That and I was really concerned about cracking acrylic due to overtightening fasteners (I can be a bit heavy-handed).

After doing much more reading however, it turns out that as long as it's well designed then the fact that it's an acrylic frame is not really a problem. And, as you mention, you can always print parts to fix specific issues . When you're putting together a kit, more printer parts are usually the first thing that people make (aside from test pieces) .

Just got a shipping confirmation for my printer and I noticed the full description states:

Free gifts: Filaments+Hotbed +SD card +Tools

Aw, yes! I knew I was getting some filament with it, and I expected there might be some cheapo tools in the box, but the SD card is a bonus and hotbed suggests it's a heated print bed afterall!

Sweet!

Tho frankly I'd leave the SD card well alone and use one of my own... One I that know isn't potentially loaded with malware!
