      Backer number 318 blue unit, San Diego CA. USA. Got address confirmation email Jan 15, no tracking number, received printer Feb. 24. Package a little banged up and it shows on one of the pylons but assembled fine. They should of line the inside of the box with styrofoam Initially print failed, the stop sensor was a little too high causing extrusion jam on build plate but after calibration and hand forcing the pla jam out, the star printed fine.

      Still not received my printer or any email regarding shipping. I realise this is a bit like a ridiculously broken record but any chance of receiving some form of communication or the price get itself sometime soon? Was actually I tended as an Xmas gift for someone given the original delivery date detailed - it looks like I've just neglected to buy something!

      My printer still isn't delivered. The tracking code I got says it was delivered and received in another country, weeks ago. And now 101hero says I have to pay again to receive a printer. I've been waiting for months without any word and now they're trying to scam me out of more money.

      Hello Creator,

      I still have not gotten an email with the tracking information. I see a lot of people already got their printers. Can you please update?

      I have to submit an apology to the makers. I put my printer all together and I found the problem whit it. It was my own stupidity. Problem solved and this little thing is printing up a storm. I have to admit it took me 45 min to put it together and 2 min to level it. so far its working like a charm. Keep the faith everyone it seems they are still sending them out.

      Mine arrived on Thursday. Today I opened one up and put it together. Right out of the box I have a stepper motor that won't budge. The other two, when I put in the motor test file, only move up, and that's about it.

      This is a fucking bad, sick joke. Is there a site somewhere that others who have gotten these things can help each other out? I'm new to 3D printing and this is just horrible quality, even a newbie can see that.

    21. Jim Bussing 2 days ago

      well was it worth the 99$ I paid? NO it was a 99$ lesson of trust. but yes I did receive the product.
      was it worth it? No I did take it out of the box plug it all in and powered it up not even a light came on. I am not going to waste anymore of my time on this. I packed it into the box witch it came and will keep it as a reminder. Trust is something earned and with 101 Hero that is gone.

      I dont believe my eyes My printer just showed up!! and it is not broken that I can see
      it was delivered 2 days ago to my neighbors house and they have been gone. it would have been nice if I had a tracking # and or anything telling me it was coming. lets see if I can get this thing to work............. more to come.

      Decided to build it as I was too excited. Printer went together easy and set up with repetier host was easy enough. It's currently printing a test piece and so far not doing too bad at 12 mm/s for a first print using their filament. I've had worse first prints. I will need to calibrate it a bit and see what I can get out of this little printer.

      Just got my printer here in California. Delivered by UPS. Ordered blue, upgraded to DV version and got what I ordered. Nothing broken, all seems to be in one piece with no damage anywhere to be seen. I will be building it tomorrow and see how it works.

      Backer #2253 (Finland)
      Received my printer a couple of days ago (got an inquiry about shipping details 4 weeks ago). First impressions:
      - Package is as ordered (printer version DV, in blue colour, with extra filaments), nothing is missing
      - Molded parts are fine, no problems with assembly / fitting parts together
      - The quality of electrical and electromechanical parts is not very good
      * SD card reader is broken, had to tweak it to make good contact between card and reader
      * one of axis limiting microswitches was broken, luckily I had a suitable spare around
      - every stepper motor seems to work ok, one makes a bit louder noise than the others
      - the level calibration was quite a tedious job, but after few hours of testing&adjusting both test file (star figure from manufacturer site) and some other test model from Thingiverse (using Cura) started to print out reasonably well
      - The provided Cura-profile seems to need minor tweaking / adjusting, some more test runs are probably needed

      My expectations were not very high after reading many of the non-encouraging comments, but (maybe because of that) at the moment I'm quite satisfied with the printer. Everything is working ok eventually, and for a 3D-printing noob like me this has already taught a lot.

      Mine arrived today. I set it up in less than an hour. (I was being careful). Now I am figuring out how to use it. The cura files are not sufficient for slicing parameters. All motors work and I got a 1/2 print out of it.

      for everyone who hasn't received a printer, it seems that when they ask for a mobile number just before sending the printer, my wasn't sent from china until mid feb. Also for anyone who paid extra for a 3d printer pen, chances are you wont get one...
