Have a question?
So what's the scoop? When are we getting the printers or the refunds. 2.5 years later, really?!
When will I get my refund? tks!
Will we receive our printers or receive a refund ??
Yes... Will we be refunded or will were rive our printers ???
Will I get a refund? Or will I get my printer? over a million dollars was pledged and paid! Where did this money go?
Still waiting if I could get my refund..
Glad you got your refund, still waiting here.
Would just like to say thank you to Michael, refund was received today.
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.
Michael, did you email them at the email address I used?
Brilliant news Tom :). I still wait
It arrived today! Wohoo!
Still nothing at my end here in Australia
Glad to hear that Tom..
Just got confirmation of shipment!
Right, there is hope. I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
You won't get an answer at the Google Hangout either :-(
After more than two years, waiting for a printer ...
And still: No printer and no refund ...
Everyone needs to send messages to the RigidBot Google hangout. You will not receive answers here
I too opted for a refund after more than two years, waiting for a printer ...
And still: No printer and no refund ...
Six months on from the refund offer from Inventapart (which I accepted) and still no news.
Ever, not Every!! :-|
Like myself Kanpoj, I doubt you'll every see a printer. I've been trying to ages but with no luck :-(
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.
Michael, no I haven't paid extra for delivery, I have tried to but no luck plus no communications when I have asked :-(
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.)
Did you pay extra for delivery ??
Still nothing :-( A case of take the money and run I guess. �
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...
Pierre from Switzerland
Do you have any ETA?
I still haven't got my printer and I'm starting to think that I'll never get it.
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.
You will get more information here
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 !! )
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.
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
best place for answers is here -
You will never get a refund.. impossible. If you want your Rigidbot you must pay extra $ for postage out of U.S.A
@ 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 ??
What can we do? I told kickstarter staffs about this situation, but they answered "sorry" only. No one is responsible about this?
Any news on shipping. Didn't receive anything.
What's going on? They don't answer to my mails.
No one knows?
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.
No answer on refund either (I was told to wait few weeks months ago...)...
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.

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.
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
Nothing from the refund programme as yet. Mr Lundwall has had an interest free loan from me. I hope he appreciates it.
same same ... still nothing and no response
Karel, I'm afraid like many of us your money is long gone and your getting nothing for it :-(
I didnt received rigidbot, when you will shop it. Pls I need it asap. Karel vitek
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.
