I ordered the BOM for the 300x300x400 HEVo from Component Explorers Store on AliExpress.
All prices I mention will be in CDN dollars
When I ordered it, it was $739 or so, with free shipping. Today it's $727.11 + 27.38 shipping.
The seller guarantees 30 day delivery. I ordered mine on April 10. It was shipped on April 14, and Fedex delivered it to my door on April 18.
Here's something to consider if you are getting a BOM from China.
I investigated the possibility of ordering it without the extrusions, since they are the heaviest parts. I could have ordered it without the extrusions for a saving of $111. Sounded good, so I checked with Misumi (in the US). They could supply all the extrusions for about $175. Checked with an 8020 dealer in Vancouver, and that came in at over $200. So I ordered the BOM with the extrusions included.
Well, turns out that it cost me more in the long run. I assembled the frame, then noticed that it was decidedly unsquare. Pulled it apart and checked the lengths and squareness of the cuts. They were not all the same length, and some were not squarely cut.
Took them to a machine shop and had them milled square and to length. I was not impressed by the price of having that done. I did not get a quote in advance, and I ended up paying $160 to have them fixed.
If I ever do this again, I'll get the extrusions from Misumi. They laser-cut them, so they'll be bang on.
