What I paid for, is not only the printer but a lot of color wheels together with the printer.
Any news????!! I'm still waiting for my printer, it's going to be a year and still nothing
Are they still being mailed out? I have not received mine either.
If there is anybody out there who received their printer and had problems other than the effector (extruder assy) and also can't get parts and would like to sell their assy at a reasonable price to recover some of their loss then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how much you want. For those with the same problem as mine, if I can't get a replacement assy I intend to convert this over to a laser engraver as the tracking isn't too bad and would be easy to do. Just an idea. If you think you might do the same, email me and when I do this I'll let you know how I did it and how it turned out. FYI, won't be doing this for at least a month.
Received my two printers a few weeks ago. One worked, one didn't. Need a new extruder assy with heater and thermistor. I stated I would install it into the holder but after sending a few email I have yet to get a response. I guess they will not be offering replacement parts if you have a problem. Instead you will need to purchase a complete replacement? For less than 50% more money you can get an Anet A8 assy which I have also purchased and it gives a 1000% better print. I you're not going to be able to repair your printer if you have a problem then why buy it.
March 20th and still no printer or any communication....WTF.
When it shipped in? I'd have been waiting for.
Any updates? Still waiting
Well? I haven't heard anything from december!
Any update regarding shipping?
Got mine today (Colombia).
I also have not heard anything about my order since receiving survey. Any updates will be most appreciated.
I have not heard anything about my order in a very long time. I recieved a Kickstarter survey for my address, back in October. Since then I have not received any further communication or my printer. What should I be expecting, moving forward? When should I expect to hear from someone?
Like others, I received a request for my phone number in January and telling me shipments would be after 11 Feb. Finally got both of my printers two days ago. They went together very easily and all motors tested good. I used repetier and manually ran them. When I tried to heat the extruders, one went to temperature (200 degrees C) easily and held temperature good. The other one would not go over 181 degrees C. I figure it's either the controller (I'm going to swap the two to test it) or the heater in the extruder. If it is then I'll need to find out which type it is (I suspect it's a resistor). If anybody has replace the heater and already knows I would appreciate it if you could post it here. I'm going to try a test print tomorrow and will let everybody know how it turns out. While I didn't expect too much from a $49 printer, it is better than I expected.
I saw on the maker muse youtube that they had to put in a piece of carboard to add pressure to the feed system. If you remove the filament after trying to feed it, see if it looks like its being worn. This would mean that it is slipping due to too little pressure. If you have the DV version use Repetier in manual mode with the door open to the extruder and see if the feeder is turning when you manually tell it to feed. You did cut the filament on a sharp angle so that it would be able to start to feed didn't you? Hopefully this helps some.
Put my together today no problem, then i went to print the test and barley any filament comes out, ive tried a bunch of times, tried adjusting the skrews to get it closer to the bed and nothing really comes out. It is through the second hole i made sure of that. Any one have this issue any help would be appreciated
I got a message about confirming my address in February and it said it'd ship on Feb 15th. Still no printer
To Alvaro Nassutti , if you are in the US and cannot make this work let me know. If the price is right I'd be willing to purchase it from you for parts. Let me know. Leave a message here and I'll get back to you with my email.
I want to share with other backers that I received a message from 101hero asking for my phone number and giving me a shipping date of around Feb 11th. I replied as asked but didn't get any confirmation or tracking number.
Today,Feb 23rd, I received the printer (I live in the USA). After you receive the email with the phone number, in about 14 working days you should receive the printer.
Hope this help those who are still waiting.
Supposed to be delivered in Oct 2016, nothing. They do not even answer the messages. I think I will report this.
Where is this project? No communication? No printer?
Mine should have been delivered in Oct 2016,have sent messages and no reply,really think this is rubbish.
Hi! as of February 16th, no printer....

I just got my RED printer, I asembled it but i cannot make it work. It never started after the 2 minutes, I waited more than 10min, in different occations and tried reset and power it off/on and no luck. The fan in the head works but it never warm up. :( Any idea?
Hi I still didnt receice my printer any ETA??
Any ETA on the printer?
I'm from Canada and I got my printer this week. (january 17th) I got the yaya pen at the same time, it was in the box. Also, I never get any tracking number from the team but they contact me to get my phone number to ship the printer by express post, I only get it once it was stuck at the borders.
I think everybody has to be patient, they will ship all printers, the delays are expected in a kickstarter. But I agree more communication would be welcome.
I'm a backer of your project and i already send your team many message in about 5 month but until now i still don't receive any reply and my Hero101 too. Some one can help me???? my email email@example.com, Reply me soon
I'm so dissapointed
Received a message from firstname.lastname@example.org asking for my mobile number, with a reply address of 'email@example.com'. Giving a shipping date of around Feb 11th.
Anyone else getting this? I replied.
Now, what about that YaYaPen! Still haven't gotten that.
Looks like 5 or 10 printers are being received each week. Not great but at least it says that there is a chance I'll get the two that I ordered. I suggest going to YouTube.com and look at some of the videos posted by people that have gotten their printers. It does show some of the questions I didn't know to ask about the design of the printer. IE: resolution, stepper steps per turn (shows how fine the movements are), if parts are going to be available if I receive my printer, speed, etc. For $49 I'm not going to expect too much, was only hoping to see what it took to print and to learn. I am only looking to print items that don't need to be 100% critical. We'll see. Hopefully I will get mine soon.
Didn't even get it for Xmas (Dec) or my Birthday (Jan)!!! Delayed much? :(
Just got my printer tonight in Washington state! Can't wait to put it together and give it a try!
No printer yet, no emails or tracking number either... Where can we check the status?
Mine just arrived in the UK. so they are out there. Now to put it together...
When can I get my printer?
got my printer Tuesday the 16th 2017, just showed up at my door! made it to Kentucky package nice....and the great thing is, working like a $49 + dollar printer should work. thx 101hero's
This project seems to be a very bad joke.
Our credit cards have been charged a long time ago and there no communication from 101 Hero since last year (sic!).
It'll be very kind of you, 101 Hero to send us ETA or just an estimation of the volume already shipped ?
Please inform us...
