Great review Andrew! Having assembled one of those already with the Team at DesignSpark I know how much joy it is. We had great fun and the time is definitely worth it. We reckon it's fair to say it can be build in 8 hours by 1 person. It took us just over 10 hours but we have been gathering feedback for the RepRap Team for documentation improvements. Like you say in your blog, the instructions are updated overnight and we believe they are pretty much there right now. RS are committed to supporting the enthusiasts building Ormerods and that's why our Technichal Customer Support Team were participating in the build and get to know the printer and the process. Now they are helping our customers get their printers running. It's worth to note that majority of customers actually have no problem building the Ormerods without any extra guidance or help. Many customers confirmed finalising the build successfully! Looking forward to the decommissioning part of your blog!
