Hello Everyone, This is a Pi Powered ( and possible I will add a panda or Atomic Pi for remote access, camera monitoring ect.) That counts as a robot right?? Anyways here are the live build videos, and they will be edited and voiced over for better viewing pleasure.     The Unboxing Video     First Video     Time 30 min     Second Video     Time 3hr 53min     Third Video     Time 4hr 11min     Fourth Video      Time 4hr 15min

Have you had anymore time on getting this completed?
Hey Will, I know this reply took forever,but I have been cramming for school, the end of the month is the end of my semester and I have 6-8 essays to write and a exam. Anyways about the build. I stopped at the electronics because once I fired up the Orange Pi and LCD screen I only had half the screen showing and the touch screen did not work at all. If I plugged the LCD into other devices like my laptop it worked. SO... I complained a few times about the issue and 2-3 weeks later received a replacement screen and orange pi to try again as clearly there is an issue with one of them. So once I am comfortable with my headway on the schoolwork I will get back to the 3D printer build. It is pretty close to being ready to print though. Fingers Crossed!
Also they also sent me shorter screws for the bowden extruder block so I was able to screw it down enough to look right. I did pick up some white wire loom wrap to unify the two filament tubes that were hanging freely and the various wires going to the gantry as well.
