not with the printer kit. On the contrary, the longer I'm building, the more I appreciate the solutions the Prusa devs have come up with (and the more of the Thingiverse upgrades I preliminarily collected I assign, if not to my mental wastebin, then at least to the "do it later" stack).
Also not with the online instructions. There were one or two situations where some parts popped up that weren't introduced before, but nothing that couldn't be solved by actually looking at the bags the stuff came in.
A big compliment to both the devs and the compilers of the manual, then.
But look at this:
The bag on the left is the one that came with the printer - opened as per instructions, and some bears eaten. The one on the right I just bought at the local drugstore. That should hopefully suffice now to get me to the first print. Prusa, you're starving your customers.
P.S.: The platform under the printer, where I'm building on and later hope to be printing on is a 40x40 cm (chinese) granite outdoor floor tile from the local diy store. The front is rough, sandblasted, but the rear is smooth from the saw and, as far as I can tell, pretty much flat. Smoother and flatter than a concrete paver, although also almost twice as expensive
