      Will I get a refund? Or will I get my printer? over a million dollars was pledged and paid! Where did this money go?

    4. Creator Pasi Vallittu 6 days ago

      Still waiting if I could get my refund..

    5. Creator amigacooke on September 27

      @Darren Compton

      Glad you got your refund, still waiting here.

    6. Creator Darren Compton on September 25

      Would just like to say thank you to Michael, refund was received today.

    7. Creator Darren Compton on September 24

      I note that their website is showing all printers as out of stock. Has anyone actually received their refund yet? This was meant to happen once the kits were sold on which if they're out of stock they must have sold them all surely.

    8. Creator Tom Keating on September 16

      Michael, did you email them at the email address I used?

    9. Creator Michael Banks on September 7

      Brilliant news Tom :). I still wait

    10. Creator Tom Keating on August 24

      It arrived today! Wohoo!

    11. Creator Michael Banks on August 21

      Still nothing at my end here in Australia

    12. Creator Denny The Backer on August 19

      Glad to hear that Tom..

    13. Creator Tom Keating on August 19

      Just got confirmation of shipment!

    14. Creator Tom Keating on August 13

      Right, there is hope. I emailed and they found my kickstarter pledge. I went online as directed and paid the extra Fedex charge, so, it's ordered now. Fingers crossed, it arrives. I'll update here when it arrives.

    15. Creator Tom Keating on August 12

      You won't get an answer at the Google Hangout either :-(

    16. Creator Shlomo Haddad on August 1

      After more than two years, waiting for a printer ...
      And still: No printer and no refund ...

    17. Creator Michael Banks on July 30

      Everyone needs to send messages to the RigidBot Google hangout. You will not receive answers here

    18. Creator Michael Kirsten on July 22

      Hi there,
      I too opted for a refund after more than two years, waiting for a printer ...
      And still: No printer and no refund ...

    19. Creator amigacooke on July 17

      Six months on from the refund offer from Inventapart (which I accepted) and still no news.

    20. Creator Tom Keating on July 11

      Ever, not Every!! :-|

    21. Creator Tom Keating on July 11

      Like myself Kanpoj, I doubt you'll every see a printer. I've been trying to ages but with no luck :-(

    22. Creator Kanpoj K. on July 9

      My name is Kanpoj Kornpariphan
      I backed the project on kickstarter TWO years ago and now I still HAVE NOT received the printer

      Backer No #286

      What's your solution on this?
      I'm looking forward for your reply.

    23. Creator Tom Keating on July 8

      Michael, no I haven't paid extra for delivery, I have tried to but no luck plus no communications when I have asked :-(

    24. Creator Alvin Lua on July 8

      Anybody in Singapore or Malaysia who wants to get this 3d printer kindly contact me at +6590716060 as I still have 1 that never open yet, have not set up and still in shipping box. (RigidBotBig 12"x16"x10" PLA Kit. Includes 6' of PLA material. With LCD / SD card reader kit.)

    25. Creator Michael Banks on July 6

      @ Tom
      Did you pay extra for delivery ??

    26. Creator Tom Keating on June 10

      Still nothing :-( A case of take the money and run I guess. �

    27. Creator Guillaume on May 26

      Incredible... I just got my rigidbot Big today.... I thought that i Would Never get it...
      just a little problem.... The rigidbot was not well packed... And it came with some broken pieces.... Hope that inventapart has spare pieces to make the repair...

    28. Creator DiGMi on May 26

      Do you have any ETA?
      I still haven't got my printer and I'm starting to think that I'll never get it.

    29. Creator Tom Keating on May 17

      Thanks Michael, went to the Google Hangout, found a link to submit a ticket for the printer that I didn't receive. Let's see what happens.

    30. Creator Michael Banks on May 9

      Ok I must apologise.. It seems that the sale is to help fund outstanding backers have their rigidbots shipped.

      NOTE: Please read the latest UPDATES. ( I simply failed too .. Dooh !! )

    31. Creator Michael Banks on May 9

      InventaPart have decided to have a SALE ... They're selling Rigidbots on the cheap.

      Before any sales proceed... Michael Blundells's company " InventApart " should fulfill all KickStarter backers.

      All sales fro this sale should go directly to the delivery of our rigidBots... Use the sales profit to deliver out RigidBots.

    32. Creator Michael Banks on May 9

      Everyone needs to goto the Rigidbot Google hangout.

      There is an InventAPart person on the forum to answer all questions...

      Forget using this Kickstarter Comments section... it's dead... move to the Google Hangout

    33. Creator Michael Banks on May 9

      You will never get a refund.. impossible. If you want your Rigidbot you must pay extra $ for postage out of U.S.A

    34. Creator Michael Banks on May 9

      @ dae-Hyuan Kim @ Carsten - Have you paid the extra $$$ to have your Rigidbot sent to you ?

      if not... you will never receive it. if you have paid the extra delivery fee, it should have been sent. Have you read the latest update ??

    35. Creator Dae-Hyun Kim on May 6

      What can we do? I told kickstarter staffs about this situation, but they answered "sorry" only. No one is responsible about this?

    36. Creator Carsten Kaestner on April 29

      Any news on shipping. Didn't receive anything.

    37. Creator Dae-Hyun Kim on April 20

      What's going on? They don't answer to my mails.

      No one knows?

    38. Creator Ross Webb-Wagg on April 17

      Checked my account and it is not showing any order number or tracking number, anyone else has this problem? I have also requested a refund the $570 that I pledge.

    39. Creator Federico Noferi on April 13

      No answer on refund either (I was told to wait few weeks months ago...)...

    40. Creator NETIUS on April 11

      3D Printers has always been troubled in Kickstarter and there is another one that maybe questionable coming to market soon. Its beginning to making wave now and if your interested in the project links are below for discussion. It does look a little more promising but RB started that way as well.

      Kickstarter Project -

      Open Discussion by Fans -

      I know some may be hurt from RigidBot especially on a International Level. Where do we stand with this currently - sounds like RigidBot has given up and offered a FedEx option that you must choose to get your printer. Which I think is completely wrong - has anyone received their printer recently on a International Level without paying the FedEx Fee? I see selecting the FedEx Options they go out fairly easily with some custom issues.

    41. Creator Tommy Nilsson on April 8

      My mail contact with invenapart has been good. Skipped my printer and its stuck in customs atm but thats becuse they value the pakage over 100% more then what i payd for it. so 2 more days and i should have the printer. And i payd to get it shipped with FedEx

    42. Creator amigacooke on April 7, 2015

      Nothing from the refund programme as yet. Mr Lundwall has had an interest free loan from me. I hope he appreciates it.

    43. Creator Hayal on April 6, 2015

      same same ... still nothing and no response

    44. Creator Tom Keating on April 5, 2015

      Karel, I'm afraid like many of us your money is long gone and your getting nothing for it :-(

    45. Creator Karel Vitek on March 28, 2015

      I didnt received rigidbot, when you will shop it. Pls I need it asap. Karel vitek

    46. Creator Tom Keating on March 18, 2015

      I haven't paid the FedEx cost but willing to pay it to get the printer but no contact from Michael. Really disappointed of the lack of communication. I have no issues with the risk of investing in a kickstarter project but when there is no communications it speaks volumes of something not right.

    47. Creator Guillaume on March 18, 2015

      here is the same ... nothing received... and no response......
      I think that Kickstater should better protect backers.......against
      such guy like Michael... I pledged... 1025$.... It is a lot of money... and being not informed is not acceptable....
      Tom do you have paid extra for the Fedex shipping?
      As I do not want to pay extra .... and not receiving and loosing 200$ more........

    48. Creator Tom Keating on March 17, 2015

      Still nothing and no response. :-(
