September 2015 - This printer is awesome. Printing now lens caps and filter adapters like cakes.
* it is rock solid
*it has good parts not cheap ones.
* the speed can be cranked to 90mms. If want more speed at 100mms it starts to move on the table.
* never had any jams.
*noisy. Probably motor dampers could lower the noise
* some engineering solutions look weird to me. But it works. If you buy one you will agree with me on this.
* has no heat bed.
Overall highly recommended. RemusL

August 2015 - I purchased this printer because of the great instructions. I had never built anything quite so complex and I wanted to be sure the instructions were clear. There are multiple boxes for each stage and there are many pictures so there is little that can go wrong. I finished this with my son and daughter in about 10hrs and it worked first time. The only worry was the wire colours on the steppers did not exactly match the instructions so we were left guessing which way round some of the connectors attached. Fortunately since the wires are all terminated in plugs it becomes obvious which way connectors are inserted. The components are good quality and the extruder and hot end work well. This is one of the few heads designed to print in flexible filament...although it is still a slow process. The bed can be expanded with an additional kit...perfect for printing shoes...but beware printing anything over fist size will take many many hours. Nevertheless all components can be upgraded once you get familiar with the process. Lots of fun, thoroughly recommended. DavidS
July 2015 - This printer was fun to assemble. I was printing about 4 hours after assembling. Initial prints were better than I expected. The price is higher than other prusa printers. But quality place the matter. AntonioD
July 2015 - The BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos is a great 3D printer if you are on a low budget and don’t need to print highly detailed objects. With its big print bed and solid construction it is a great printer for hobbyists and tinkerers. I’m not sure if the printer is suited for total beginners, but as it is an open source design you can profit from the reprap community and many questions have already been answered on their forums. You can download every printed and non-printed part from BQ's github page and many people already have made their own additions on thingiverse.. Max
June 2015 - Full marks on the packaging - excellent. I'm also very impressed with the thought behind the build choices; I wish more devices were built this way!. AndrewM

April 2015- Very good service from 3D print world. I would recommend without hesitation. KrisC
April 2015 - Thank you for the support and the printer. I can’t believe how easy it was to build and how well it has worked on my first few prints. I am already printing complex models and I am so glad that I didn’t spend 10 times as much on a so called ‘industrial’ printer. StuartS.
April 2015 - If only id known about this place before i purchased my printer :-( i did a lot of research before buying my printer but wasnt sure what was what so bought the cheapest prusa kit i could find. My printer works but i should have bought the one in this shop for a few quid more as its so much better quality and looks fantastic. Im really thankfull to trever for sharing some of his wealth of knowladge with me and based on the support i was offered when buying a roll of filament, i will be buying one of their printers soon! I cant thank the staff enough for their helpfulness and enthusiasm today. I am so pleased ive found this place!!! KevinO

February 2015 - Incredible quality especially considering the Price. I currently own 2 other printers and neither have the same resolution or finish as this machine. I could not be happier. PaulW
January 2015 - I recently bought a Prusa i3 3D printer for our Makerflux workshop. It was sold as a kit, although it could have been assembled for a relatively small fee.
The staff were helpful and polite and shipped it immediately for next day delivery. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and can recommend them. StevenP
