$350 and $425 Level Assembly Instructions

This link will take you to the assembly instructions for the $350 and $425 levels. I have assembled the exturder already so there is not much left to do once you get your system. Just some basic stuff and hooking up the wires. 

Please make sure to cover up all the unused wires or terminal strips, with the wire nuts and electrical tape. Do not leave any contact exposed for safety reasons.

I may have missed some steps, so let me know and I can put more pictures up or explain more. 

Thanks

If you are new to 3D printing we suggest that you get yourself a copy of Fabricated by Hob Lipson. In his book he mostly everything about 3D printing. Plus Filabot is in it!

Press
Recently, we have noticed a lot of confusion and misconceptions about who we are at Rocknail Specialties. Tyler McNaney, age 20, invented Filabot over a slow winter break from college. Currently a sophomore at Vermont Technical College, Tyler runs business out of his small home town of Milton, Vermont. If you are going to write an article please get this right.

3D/DC
We are excited to announce our presence at the second annual 3D printing conference this April in Washington, DC. Check out this amazing event and opportunity to discuss 3d printing:
