Keep in mind this printer is a DIY to the extreme and not for the weak. There are a lot of parts to put together which is why the price point is so low.
It is a fun project for someone who has patience and loves to tinker. The parts come in small numbered zip lock pouches. I would suggest you lay out all the bags in order on a table, keep the part lists, document and video handy. Also double/triple check your electric connections.
Do not remove more parts than the directions require you to. If you remove all parts you will get confused. The assembly instructions are laid out in steps in the document and every step has the part number which refers to the pouch number, the description of the part and quantity. Lots of extras included as well.
After we found the YouTube videos and he painstakingly finished putting it together, we discovered that the z-axis assembly motors were jammed. This turned out to be because both 6mmx300mm threaded rods were hopelessly bent -- at least 4mm out of true, measured at the center. Of course 4mm of error in the x axis means the machine can't print and can't be adjusted.
I emailed Geeetech explaining the situation and suggested that it would be much simpler for everyone if they would send us two replacement threaded rods. In the meantime, I suggested we experiment with manually setting platen position and so forth using one of the many software packages out there. We chose Repetier. Then we discovered that our Mac couldn't talk to the 2560 board. After I installed the suggested drivers, the board was still invisible. I emailed Geeetech tech support, which suggested I switch to a PC, or to Linux, which I did (to both), with no result.
At this point the fact that both my ten-year-old and I were good at mechanical and tech stuff but newbies to 3D printing really began to sink in. Geeetech suggested that we'd find the answer "on the forums" -- as if we hadn't already been over every forum with a fine tooth comb and googled ourselves to death. I emailed back, explaining that we'd hunted around and requesting more detailed help.
At about this point, I realized that Prusa-style controllers are usually Arduinos and that the Geeetech 2560 was based on the Arduino Mega, and everything snapped into place, sort of. That is, I realized that there was no reason we couldn't see the 2560 board by using the Arduino IDE. Then Geeetech suggested we make it visible to Repetier by reloading the firmware. That's when things went off the rails. Compiling the firmware on the Mac's Arduino IDE crashed the Mac, something I'd never seen before. Black screen and reboots. By this time we were fully aware that Geeetech didn't really support Mac people -- witness the email asking me to switch to a PC -- so we did. Lo and behold, compiling the firmware on the PC caused the compiler to throw errors about bad structs. I'm sure this didn't happen to most other people, but it was happening to us, and once again "the forums" and "googling around" yielded nothing. Eventually Geeetech support suggested we do everything we'd already done, but over again. Still nothing.
Now, here's the thing: If we'd been experienced at dealing with issues with Prusa-type firmware, or if the controller had become visible to Repetier (or to anything), or if the threaded rods hadn't been hopelessly bent from the outset, in spite of the black paint that came off on our hands and clothes and furniture, the spotty quality control and the problems working with tech support via FB Message, I think we would have pushed on. We both like solving problems, we're both tenacious. But, believe me, I did not want my ten-year-old's first coding experience to be thrashing with obscure compiler errors in someone else's C++ source.
So we returned it. It may that we were just unlucky...that we got all the wrong things and that everyone else's experience is fine. I certainly hope so. I think this could be a good kit for someone with even a small amount of experience with 3D printing, but if you're a beginner, go for a pre-assembled one with instructions included, and take on something like this after you've been around the block a few times.
