"The build process will take several hours depending on your level of competency. All the tools required to complete the build are available from Maplin."

Why on earth would this take several hours or more to build?

Because you have to print the parts required as you go along...

Because it's literally a box of bits. The sort of person who would buy this will get as much enjoyment out of building it as using it.

There are loads of modding and improvement forums for it on the web.

The 527 page assembly manual here may give you a clue.

Have to build everything and then calibrate it. Even have to construct the print head, tighten the screw and bolts just right, soldering involved. Not a build for the beginner
