This week I have ordered a 3D printer, the Ecksbot v4, from openhardware.co.za. While it usually takes 2-4 weeks for prep and delivery, I am lucky enough to be receiving mine next week.
I will be documenting my build process along with my first couple of prints here. Now it is just to be patient and wait for my printer
[2014-11-24] Update: Reaching about 80% in the build process, I realized that two of my axis do not line up. So now it is back to square one. I have to disassemble it, drill/cleanup some parts and then start from the start again.
A tedious process, but then again, a DIY printer is not for beginners
