      I've been waiting since Oct 2016 and still no printer. Last communication from them was to update my phone number and still nothing. Really disappointing.

      Felipe, I agree with you. We used to have a sign up in a lab I worked in: "Anybody can build just one!" It was an attempt to explain to management why, after we got a prototype running, it still took lots of time and money to turn it into production. I strongly suspect the 101Hero people did not understand that. They had a noble idea, and no idea what it would take to actually mass produce a reliable useful printer. Now, having had their noses rubbed in a pile of reality, I fear they have panicked and run back into the bushes, even though their original intentions were probably good.

      Besides all of the comments regarding to the author of this shitty project, I already contacted kickstarter and they wrote that the platform were built to allow direct communication with the author and shall be used to make a direct agreement between the two parts with no interference of kickstarter; bottom line, kickstarter doesnt do enything for the backers to force any refund. Shame of platform as well.

      I never received my USD 25-00 refund for the lack of Filaments they were supposed to ship to me as part of my pledge. From the recent comments, I can see we backed a dodgy developer. Sad!

      What is our recourse for never receiving our printers?

      Can we sue them? I think Kickstarter should take a look into this and help us.

      Backer number 2632. Still no printer. How can you claim you shipped all printers without sharing any tracking IDs? Refund my money you cheats!!!

      Sadly, Garrett, I strongly suspect you are correct. Their other page, which states that "the web site for getting replacement parts will be up very soon" was dated May 24th, and no announcement (or even comment) since then. A couple of people have said that they sent them additional money for replacement motors, but never got anything.

      After considerable effort on the printer I received (which only printed for less than 2 minutes), I have it working. Probably $5K worth of billable hours on it, but it sort of prints recognizable stuff. [Repaired controller board. Repaired SD card adapter. Modified alignment/calibration. etc.] There are a lot of additional things I could do (there are folks who have made new pylons, replaced all four motors, replaced the hotend, replaced the controller card and power supply, and put in new software - yeah, what's left?). However, it will never be a quality printer - for a large number of reasons.

      For those who never got theirs, well, this is not much consolation. For the rest, I suggest we consider this a "learning experience" and that anything we managed to print is "entertainment value." [Sort of like buying a lottery ticket.]

      I believe your comments are wasted guys, there last login was September 14th, they saw your comments and obviously didn’t care. I have my printer so at least I have an expensive box but it’s a trash project, barely works and you will probably lose more hair trying to get it to work once you get it then if you don’t get it at all. I’m with you I’m more then over with crappy kickstarters

      I suppose there's no way to get our money back? It's almost a year after the expected delivery date and I still have not received my 3D printer.
