    The only thing i did was get purple glue stick and level the bed. I have run through 4 kilos of filament without a problem.

    Hi

    Revived my CR10 a week ago, but still having trouble getting it together.

    Has anyone here in the UK received their printer with foreign power leads. (Not UK style).

    When the printer arrived it had 2 leads, one had 2 pin plug and the other one was a very strange 3 pin plug but definitely not for the UK.

    The strange one is NEMA 5-15. This is a USA plug.

    The two prong version is somewhat EU universal.
    it is also an adapter for the NEMA 5-15.

    Rarely do manufacturers provide other options.
    Typically, if you have a different standard in your country, you can buy any IEC320-C13 (that is the "the business end") cord that is appropriate for your country.
    Optionally, there are many universal adapters out there. That will allow you to plug in different power cords into the adapter.
    The universal adapter you want is the one that will properly mate to your wall sockets.

    Thanks TommyDee for replying

    It turns out I had an old flat screen monitor that I bought from a car boot sale in my garage with a plug exactly the same as the one on the back of the control box. So it all turned out OK.

    Thanks again.

    Fabian.
