Ive built two of them. One for the house and one for the office. Both have had their quirks, sure. But, once all issues are addressed, this thing compares to the $5,000 equivalent. Ive upgraded everything I could find that needed it bringing my overall cost per machine to around $1,200. I would gladly put my FT5 against any printer of similar size out there. Im achieving speeds of 200mms with some of the upgrades ive done while maintaining extremely high quality finish. These machines have great potential if you are willing to put fourth the effort to tap into it.
