      Here's where our printers probably went:,-95.677068,4z/data=!4m3!8m2!3m1!1e1
      A local school, "For a third of the price"...

      They are hiding. Expect them to apply for Chapter 7 bankruptcy soon. Michael is kidding himself if he thinks he has broken the link back to Invent-a-part. That may be the only way we are going to see any money back.

      Since I wasn't getting my refund, I emailed them to ask about shipping it to my friend in the US instead... and still no response. Any idea how actually reach Michael? I also message him directly on the kickstarter platform but again, nada.

      Time to start looking at legal avenues I think. They owe us money and they have assets they can sell to pay us. No excuses any more.

      Let's see what's Andrew says month ago, about starting RB2 sales:
      "Great news everyone! We have an amazing deal if you are interested in a RigidBot 2 Kit!
      We are running a Beta Program of 50 machines for feedback about assembly. This machine is much easier to assemble. In fact, we think it's the best kit on the market.
      And for those that want to say "don't sell anything new till you refund or ship everything": we are still working on refunds and committed to refunding everyone who backed us on kickstarter and couldn't get their machine (about 2% at this point).
      So we're moving forward and I thought some of you would be able to provide some good feedback if you're interested."

      It's from Rigidbot G+
      So, he's saying that they're not forgetting about us, there 40 of us, and we have to wait. OK, that exactly what I'm going to do. Because I'm tried to contact them, different approaches, no response.

      Waiting on a refund...what's the status? Are they ever going to happen? SHould we write that cash off or what?

    12. Ross Webb-Wagg on

      I have also requested a refund and can no longer log into the inventapart site. I did get a email stating the refund will go ahead once it has been sold and they are now selling Rigidbot 2. I am waiting on a reply from my email asking why I can not log into the Rigidbot website.

    13. Lyutayev Alexandr on

      Also wait my refund. It was because shipping is 400$ to KZ the same as printer.
      It is too much for me. They promised to sell it on the market and then refund. Actually not good experience at all :( Hope my grandson can get it back ;)

      Go to the G+ Group if you want to discuss details on this printer. You might pop in there to post to Andy Rigidbot about any concerns

      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.

    32. Tom Keating on

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

    33. Michael Banks on

      Brilliant news Tom :). I still wait

    34. Tom Keating on

      It arrived today! Wohoo!

    35. Michael Banks on

      Still nothing at my end here in Australia

    36. Denny The Backer on

      Glad to hear that Tom..

    37. Tom Keating on

      Just got confirmation of shipment!

    38. Tom Keating on

      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.

    39. Tom Keating on

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

      And still: No printer and no refund ...

    43. amigacooke on

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