Prusa i3 Rework: Build Log #1- Introduction

I just finished building the Prusa i3 Rework kit! Of course, I'm very excited about it and can't wait to get some good prints in.

Although everything is still a bit messy, as you can see in the picture, the printer is functional and has made some successful prints with PLA on painter's tape. I was very pleased when a good print came out after all of the hard work I put into the printer (about a month of building and tweaking).

This post is the first of ten that goes over my Prusa i3 Rework build. The posts in the build log are meant to describe my build and help anyone else who decides to build the Prusa i3 Rework. They are in the same order given on RepRap's wiki page for the Prusa i3 Rework, which means that this log can be used as a companion to the build guide. All of the images from the build are in this Flickr photo album.
