I picked up an FT-5 R1 a couple of weeks back and been lurking in here since I got it.
I own a Printrbot Simple Metal (purchased new), a chinse I3 clone (Geeetech), and a Prusa Mk3s.
A friend, who owns an R/C hobby shop asked if I wanted to buy his printer, my first thought was NO, I have too many now. I had been thinking about a Voron or other build (I accidentally dropped the Geetech off of the table, so rebuilding that), My friend offered me a price that I couldn't refuse so I got it.
Most of my questions have already been answered by looking over these forums, mostly about my Printer and if Fulgertech is out of business or whatever.
My main focus right now is to get Klipper running on my Printrbot. If that works as expected, I will likely install Klipper on the FT-5 next.
I am looking forward to reading about the R3 that you guys are discussing.
I live in Florida, so at some point, the melamine gotta go.
