85% pre-built : All Foamcubes are shipped as a kit but with the pre-built option we have assembled approx. 85% of all the parts for you. A novice can assemble the rest of this kit in approx. 1-2 hours.
Controller : Regardless of which kit you choose (DIY | 85% prebuilt) all electronics and controls are delivered pre-built and pre-tested.
