Mentor – 4216 Rise of Hephaestus
Here are the details from Jerry at Robo3D:
"We are so grateful that we get to see these machines go to the best homes we can think of. We will make room in our warehouse for everyone to come in and access the inventory and also provide a side area for everyone to inspect what they have chosen.
I will be available to provide a quick assessment of the units and take note of parts they might need with the help of students from team 4216. We will be providing structural parts of the machine for free. Parts like brackets and rods. Most machines can be expected to be in good operational or near operational shape.
We will not be able to provide mainboards and hotends. We don't have inventory of these parts for the R1+. Those parts are easily found on the internet for very reasonable prices. No more than $50 total for a set of mainboard, LCD controller (really nice cheap upgrade!), wires, and hotend. We will provide links to those parts.
Some electronics we can provide like, certain motors and certain fans, but inventory is limited on those items. It is likely that there will be very little need for those items on these units.
I will be working with team 4216 to organize a Saturday workshop to help any team with any issues they are having at some time in the future and they are going to set up a forum for the region teams to collaborate on getting these units in fully operable condition.
Lastly, We also have a lot of unopened 1KG ABS filament that we are happy to donate to each team that picks up a printer."
