Build Session 1

So far we have unboxed the entire printer, have taken pictures and logged all the bags inside the boxes that have been shipped. We have also begun the construction of the printer itself.

Since we have just begun this construction of this printer, we are not sure on how tight the screws should be. If we do happen to over tighten a screw into the acrylic, it would crack the material which would not be good.

– Unsure of how tight the screws on the pieces should be
