Have a question?
I wish there was a way to delete comments on here. But until that happens please ignore my previous comment as the issue has since been resolved. Thank you.
Two years later and I still haven't received anything in return for my pledge.
I can message anyone that doesn't directly message me through my project page. Please use that or email at email@example.com also @mrjohnecker on twitter. Thanks! Project update coming today!
Hi, Saeed! I will send you some information about getting started.
Greets. I'm relatively new to the KickStarter scene so I'm just finding out about this project. Is it too late to join up? If so, is there any way I might get involved to build my own printer?
This is really interesting and I am very much interested in building a 3d printer, as well.
Are the Mendel or Huxley available as full ready to assemble kits? Electronics and all?
Thanks for your updates.
I am very proud to support your efforts even though I am a very small cog in the machine that
may help you achieve your goals.
I think that Kickstarter is what America needs to put our economy on track!
@Hubert I didn't sell out of machines. I don't have one sitting on my self. LOL
I only allowed one fully built Mendel kit because it may cost me around $1050 to build another machine of the same quality as the one I ordered. It cuts into my own wallet to build it for $900.
I might list another fully built option for a little more or a full kit unassembled if some of you are interested
how about building them in LARGE amount? just build RepRap a lot!!!!
You guys sold out ALL machines? !!!!.... is it going to be sold somewhere else?
We've got a kickstarter project called "3D Printing Electronics for Makerbot, RepRap, Cubely, Others" which might be very complimentary to this one based on comments posted to our project. It is for the PCB boards for the makerbot GEN4 electronics. I have posted a note regarding this one our project as well. Great work.
Now that I know you're completely funded I shared my backing of your project with my daughters. They're so excited about building a 3D printer -- and 'totally' want a companion cube each. Twins! what are you going to do? (The bottle opener is for me.)
In general, would you recommend the PCB 'group buy' in the project Gary mentioned? [additional info: one of the girls loves to solder] I'm also looking at Tech Zone Communication's Monolithic Electronics Set as an option.
Here's another KickStarter project for the electronic boards - PCBs or more ... See
3D Printing Electronics for Makerbot, RepRap, Cubely, Others
YOU ... ARE ... THERE!
Congrats on getting funded. I'm really looking forward to getting started with my own 3D printer. I like the product (the printer), but I really like the idea behind it more (self-replication). I'm glad that I can be a part of something like this.
Hi Pauli, I've created a new level to at $65. It includes the rewards of the builder at $50 and the helper at $15.
Re: The full Huxley kit. I have to do some shopping around for the hardware. All I've found so far is full kits including plastic parts, which I don't need since I could print them. The retailer told me they could not split the kit that way. I would like to keep it under $600 if I can find the right supplier or source the parts locally.
I just upgraded my level to include the huxley printed parts. Of course, I still want the bottle opener and the two small objects ($50 + $15 levels), but don't seem to be able to say so.
What would you set the Huxley full kit level at?
I'm considering adding a reward tier for a Huxley full kit. I would be able to print the parts but need to souce out the hardware and electronics. Would anyone be interested in that reward?
Sure, it's firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have an e-mail address, I have an offer to put to you.
Thanks, I am extremly grateful for the bump!
Great Project! I posted it on MakeYourOwnStuff.org - in our blog section. We just launched this MYOS site for DIY'ers, inventors and hobbyists to come together and make things. It's still brand new but we're getting articles written about it so we're hoping to form a robust community to help more people make things. Our system mainly deals with injection molded plastics, but we are building this community for everyone.. This way anyone can get their hands dirty and build things!
Good Luck with your project!! Please check out our site and register on our forums to become a part of the MYOS community. I'll spread the word as much as I can!
