Raft No!!! Print directly to build plate!
Print time on my Rep 2x: 4h23m
I have added "drawn in" rafts and supports so that you can print directly to the build plate.
Remove supports, clean up parts, use a twist drill to clean out holes.
I highly recommend doing an acetone vapor bath on all of the parts before you assemble. This will strengthen and help seal out water and moisture.....plus it gives it a nice glossy finish!
If you don't understand what the parts are on the list, you may not want to attempt this build!!!
