    Then panels are no problem - it's all posted. The main problem would be getting the circuit board printed for the UM2 even though the schematic and layout is public.

    I recommend you choose the electronics as your first step. The UM2 has a board that I think you can buy on their website - I think it's around $200 possibly but not sure. You could see if it's for sale on fbrc8.com for pricing only (they ship us only). Just because it's not listed doesn't mean you can still get it.

    Alternatively you can get a ramps board much cheaper and it's a fine bit of electronics. The quality of the UMO is about the same as the UM2 - they are both quite good quality.

    Note that the UMO is *not* called the UM1 because it is continuously improved. Now it comes with heated bed as standard equipment.
