Day #6 - Completed building the Rostock Max 3d V2 printer. However, the power supply isn't providing any power.  So, time to start troubleshooting the power issues.  I did remove the PSU and checked it, it isn't pushing any power anywhere (purple wire should be +5v standby and is 'on' whenever it is plugged in and it's reading 0v.)  So, either a blown fuze in the PSU or just a bad PSU.

Anyway, here are some more pictures of the completed build.

Thanks. Got the PSU replaced and now I need to get the firmware loaded in the thing and start testing it out.

Day #4 - Got the uprights wired and assembled to the base and then the top base installed. It's actually beginning to look like a printer

Only minor issues for this day:
- The #4 3/8" Sheet Metal screws that came in the kit don't seem to be the correct type. The supplied screws can't actually bite into the 'hole' (slot) in the top support. So, I picked up a few from Lowes. The picture in the instructions show the correct type of sheet metal screw, but what was in the screw bag was different.

- When putting together to top supports the instructions say that the support with block screw goes to the left, but I couldn't find anywhere it said which side was up on the top base. A couple pages later there was a picture of fully assembled top base.

So far this has been a fairly relaxing build; well, I'm moving at a relaxing pace at least. The instructions are actually quite good and easy to follow.

Day #1 of building the Rostock Max V2 3d printer. It's a Delta style printer. Looks pretty cool when fully assembled.

This is the hot end of the printer and getting ready to prepare and wire the ATX power supply

looks like the convention center people are getting the pit area set up and we're getting ready for a good competition.

Update: This the South Super Regional FIRST Championships (San Antonio, TX - HB Gonzalez Convention Center). jrFLL, FLL, FTC and FRC across three crazy hectic days! #throughglass #omgrobots #alamofirst

Day #7 - Build completed and first print came out incredible!

It is really quite amazing to see this printer go to work and start printing.  While building it was a challenge, it wasn't a frustrating challenge. It was a great deal of fun.  Even better is when the first print 'just works'.

Kudos to the SeeMeCNC team for creating such a wonderfully engineered kit!

Edit: BTW - the thing I printed was a fan shroud that fits the hot end of the printer so it can print PLA and other materials that have a lower melting point.

Day #5 - Got the mechanical build completed today. It actually looks like a printer now.  Next up is to get all the electronics wired up and installed.  I expect I'll be powering it up sometime on Sunday. #rostock #seemecnc #3dprinter

Day #3 - Hot the Onyx hotbed wired up; thermistor (tiny little thing), the LED for Onyx, small resistor for the LED and the power wires that actually heat the bed.  Then it was just matter of routing the wires, putting the spacers and screwing it down.
