      I feel bad for all of the backers who haven't received a 3d printer. I received my printer around September 2014. After a handful of successful prints the power supply failed. Support was responsive and I mailed back the bad power supply and received a new power supply within a month of sending it in.
      I think Mr. Lundwall had great intentions and was successful at producing the printers for awhile. I'm not sure what happened in the years that followed.

      Why do you people think you are entitled to a printer for your contribution? I am just curious because the nature of crowdfunding is that you are supporting a project with no commitment of any kind that the reward will be realized. this is just crowdsourcing 101 and is well documented in the kickstarter terms of service. Just curious why you think you are entitled to the reward when by contributing you agreed you were not entitled to anything other than contributing. sorry it didn't work out for you, at the same time.

      I think it's a right time to launch a legal suit kickstarter campaign X_x

      Did anyone get their money back? I've been trying to email them on either invent-a-part.com and their rigidbot.com address and I never got any replies and all emails bounced back.
      I would like to either get my money back or get the printer but really paying $425 and getting nothing in return is about as bad as it can get.

      Yeh still waiting for refund. It's been 3 years now? They have not made any contact with me, despite several attempts at contacting them. Very poor business practice. I hope someone from the USA with more connections can make these guys get what they deserve for running such an amateurish, poor excuse of a company then bailing with all our money....

      Does anyone really have the hope to see money or the printer? What is going on here is clearly a fraud. More money to be asked for is in this case an extortion, because a refund does not work. Pay more or get nothing. Meanwhile, probably pay more and get nothing. This campaign was for me a lesson. Bad for my opinion about kickstarter.

      OK guys, it looks like the Department of Justice is already looking into another Kickstarter with failed promises to refund or deliver: https://www.engadget.com/2016/10/03/coolest-kickstarter-oregon-investigation/ I would suggest that we start filing complaints with. The web address for Utah DoJ is: https://www.justice.gov/usao-ut/contact-us. Lastly, don't forget that Michael has tried to hide behind a new company name: Additive Inc https://www.additiveinc.com/about-us. This will cost them more in legal fees than they owe us, maybe they will react rather than ignoring and hiding.

      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.

      Also still waiting for a refund.

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

    37. Ross Webb-Wagg on February 23, 2016

      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.

    38. Lyutayev Alexandr on February 23, 2016

      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 ;)

      So it's at least 13 people waiting for printer or refund. I sure there's more of us - and this only from KS comments.
