The kit includes a nice plastic screwdriver so you don't accidentally your stepper driver trying to adjust the output

It seemed like the holes in the plexiglass plate and the holes in the printed part didn't quite line up. There were some scary squeaking and cracking sound when I was tightening the mounting bolts and the printed part was flexing a bit as I tightened it. I was super careful and went slow and it seemed to work itself out.

Some of the printed parts have overhangs.

No mounting screws for the electronics.

It took me a while to get the threaded rods flush to the ends of the printed parts, it was more difficult that I would have expected.
