@ Brett - Ooooooh We should have talked. I have a Geeeetech i3 Prusa. They continually pull down and re-list this thing on Amazon to get rid of bad reviews. Mine had missing parts and rods that were out-of-round and would bind and stick. I managed to source some replacement slide rods and various missing pieces. The electronics package, motor, heated deck, and extruder were fine, but the mechanical elements were awful. Out-of-spec, mismatched to each other and different from the documentation.
The Prusa design is consistently top-rated for build quality (a very stable frame) and I have yet to find a simpler or better design. It’s an open-source design with files out there for the printed or laser-cut parts and source lists for other bits. Lots of people make the open-source Prusa but the Geeetech kit is just a pile of parts that you may or may not be able to assemble into a Prusa. It will save you souring parts, but whether the parts they give you actually come together is an adventure.
My experience is from 2015 - hope yours is better. I did get mine together and it gives superb prints, but putting it together really drained a lot of life essence from me.
I said as much on Amazon. They took the product down and re-listed it without my review. I reviewed again. They relisted again.
