A tad off topic, but....I have been considering an FT6. What do you think of it so far?

It looks like it has a solid frame but rest looks like it was hit with the discount Chinese parts cannon the extruder/hotend/drivers are junk. Wiring was a complete afterthought that was poorly implemented. The 110/220 volt bed has no wire protection. There is no wire management at all...... so you are left to make up cable drag chains so you don’t burn down your house on mains wire shorts and wires wrapped around the hotend. The bed is a odd size so no aftermarket support and folgertech doesn’t seem to care about stocking build plate material....but if your looking to test your skill/perseverance/sanity/free time this is the printer for you. 4/10 would not recommend check out reviews on 50cm cr10 or 40 and 50cm hypercubes and the railcore machines. When done with the ft-6 it’s going to cost as much or more than the others.
