SeeMeCNC Rostock Max v2 Review by GodMode3D

The purchase was easily done online. Shipping costs to Canada was a little pricey but worth it - $200 CAD for duty over the converted unit and shipping prices.  The total being $1800 CAD all-in.

The package was not damaged or mishandled in transit.  All of the parts were packaged very well.  After 30 minutes of unboxing, knolling the components, and reviewing the assembly guide I started working on assembling the printer.  The build time lasted 5 days, at 4 hours a day, to match the estimated build time of 20 hours.  

Programming and flashing the firmware was easy enough but could have gone wrong if I had not followed the instructions provided - FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.  Everything went smoothly until I got an error on the printer display.  The connections to the thermistor were not done properly and I broke one of the provided heating resistors trying to diagnose and resolve the original problem.  This delayed my first print by another day as I had to find a local source for a thermistor and heating resistor  (Find your local source because maintenance of the effector assembly is inevitable if you use the stock components).  

Once the printer was programmed and calibrated I printed my first part in PLA, the PEEK fan shroud.  It printed flawlessly and was added to the hotend so I could print in ABS.  

After a month of printing the board died but John from SeeMeCNC sent me a replacement at no cost - I was glad I chose a company that offered a warranty.  The current board has been printing almost every day since.

The experience, from initial research to first print, was very educational.  I had never used arduino software or had any prior hands-on experience with 3D printing when I purchased the Rostock Max v2.  All of the research I did resulted in SeeMeCNC being the final choice and I'm glad I chose them.  The company and community support is exactly what a first-timer needs.  I would recommend this printer to anyone that is looking for a high quality machine from a company that can back their product with warranty support and part sales.

Excellent prints and large build area.

Love the auto level and the large build volume. The heated bed heats up quickly.  Didn't use the Matterware went straight to Simplfy3D.

Only had three problems: 

1) A broken glass build plate when it arrived -which they replaced. 

2) The USB cable hookup port was not in the holes on the side of the machine, which were obviously drilled for it, so we hooked up  it up by removing one of the upper plastic corner panels and hooked directly to board.

3) Needed to install Rambo driver for USB connection
