Currently watching a video on assembling my new Creality Ender-3. (This was my birthday gift from my parents.)

There's more to it than I expected.

Gonna try not to be too daunted, though. Watching through this, then going to further sort out my parts and follow along. Wanna get an idea of the steps before I try to undertake them.

Maybe by later tonight it'll be turning out a first good print. That's the goal.

I am very grateful that in-depth build videos exist, from people who experienced the tricks and traps and can alert newbies.

Because when it comes to this thing, I am an absolute newbie.

@thraeryn it is, I'm absolutely sure, but it's that satisfying kind of work that feels really good and gives off a nice endorphin output by the time it's done.
