The Rever: A fun and flexible way to enjoy 3D printing
An affordable and easy to use 3D printer that will bring the joy of creativity seamlessly into any household.
Update #4 - Some news again
Update #2 - Some news to share
Update #1 - Greetings & Happy Thanksgiving!
As a leading developer of 3D printers, we have seen products like ours put to use across fields such as industrial design and medicine. 3D printing also has the potential to bring the joy of creativity to every home, but up till now, high cost, safety concerns and complex software have meant that having a 3D printer is not an option for most families. That’s why we designed the Rever – the world’s first affordable, safe family 3D printer.
The Rever fits seamlessly into any household. Fun and educational, our product is simple enough for children to use, while also offering flexibility for those of you who are technically-minded.
3D beginners and kids can use our super easy app and chipped Rever filament, but those of you who have 3D printing experience will have all the info you need (speed, temperature etc.) to set up the Rever to use your own 3rd party slicing software and filament if you want.

The idea behind the Rever began when we visited some local schools to investigate how 3D printing can revolutionize education.
After hearing the positive feedback from teachers and students, and seeing the kids’ curiosity about new technology and their joy when they received their 3D printed items, we started work to develop the Rever, our unique, family-friendly 3D printer.
We knew that to be an option for most families, the Rever had to be affordable. We’ve invested in the molding and secure plastic base frame structure to give our customers as good a price as possible. That’s why we are able to offer The Rever for under $200 (early bird) on Kickstarter (our post-campaign price will remain family-friendly, but our backers are definitely getting special treatment for supporting us!)
Special thanks to the staff and students at the American International School of Guangzhou (AISG).
Early this summer, after a lot of rigorous testing, we successfully completed development of the Rever.
Our company, Qubea, is a world-leading developer and manufacturer of 3D printers. We have been producing cutting-edge 3D printers since mid-2012.
3D printing is revolutionizing fields such as industrial design, medicine and art, and our innovative technology has been used in applications as diverse as producing medical implants to help patients walk again and creating unique 3D printed tableware for Milan’s International Furniture Exhibition.
We know that 3D printing has the potential to transform family and home life, from the way we do DIY to the way our kids unleash their creative energy. That's why we created the Rever!

Risks and challenges
We have already successfully developed, assembled and thoroughly tested the Rever, but we need funding and supporters to start building Revers at scale. We are ready to start manufacturing and app design as soon as we meet our funding goal.
Making a complex machine such as a 3D printer is always a challenge, but with our extensive expertise in manufacturing 3D printers, we are confident that we can deliver a high-quality, reliable product.
The Rever is built to last, but we don't want you to worry about any unforeseen problems. Every Rever comes with a one-year warranty so you can relax and enjoy your new machine. During the last month of your warranty period, you'll have the opportunity to extend for another year.
We need your support! Join us in this journey and make the Rever a success!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
