I Got a 3d Printer

After years of thinking it would be cool to have a 3d printer but not seriously considering it, I finally caved. I did some research and decided a prusa i3 kit or something similar would be the best way to go. It became clear in my research that it was worth it to spend a little more on a kit that came with better materials and from a company with a good reputation. After I decided on the Makerfarm Pegasus 8″ kit, I found out that the company was based 20 minutes from my house. I got the kit with upgraded metal heated bed, metal motor mounts and graphical LCD screen. Read on for my full build description and reaction after using it for a couple of months!
