      We did not delay your units arrival but were simply waiting for you to complete your information for final checkout. As we informed you many times in your communications with us, we did not refuse to repair your unit, only that your sale of the unit to a third party meant the unit was not covered by the warrenty. We remain willing and able offer you repair and replacement services via our normal support channels.

      This was the worst product ever and I have had such a bad experience with customer service I am not scared of buying any products from kick starter.
      The product was delayed by about a year for me, before receiving the printer I asked them to cancel my order since it was delayed, they refused to cancel it and told me to sell the printer for a profit.
      I sold the printer for a loss on ebay and the customer returned it showing that it was defective. I contacted M3D to fix the printer and they refused to since I sold it and they said that voids the warrnty (THEY WERE THE ONES WHO TOLD ME TO SELL IT)
      This is a piece of garbage and is just a $300 paperweight. I am so dissapointed. I feel like they intentionally sent me a bad unit since they knew I wanted to return this product.

      Not everyone had that experience, @carl pabst. Presumably, you've updated the software, recalibrated, etc? I found a little blue painter's tape (3M ScotchBlue 2090) on the bed does wonders.

    8. carl pabst on August 14

      too bad the original printer is nothing but a fancy paperweight. After all the hype it would have been nice to actually print something in 3d, instead of burning through all those reels of "ink" for nothing but spderwebs

      i have given you $299 and you haven't fulfilled. I have done the survey's and other steps, and I have zilch show for it a year later, while you move on to new projects. I'm going to quit ks this is about the 6th time I've been screwed over

      We are happy to provide a parts service for any repair you need and even replace a unit entirely if need be, but as a small company we are not able to offer free shipping at this time. We put that information forward honestly in our terms and conditions. We are still available to offer you any support you need.

      My Micro is sitting here collecting dust.. Worked for the first few prints then problem after problem.. Support solution was to pay shipping from Canada (NOT). Then you have my LulzBot.. Something doesn't work, "sure, let us send you the part...." I get the Micro was supposed to be consumer focused, but then it should have been a quality product.. Sorry M3D... just stating fact.

      Worst Kickstarter ever. Printer is rubbish and software is pure shit.

    22. David Andruczyk on July 8

      Where's the NATIVE Linux support you promised with the original kickstarter?? That's the ONLY reason I supported the project, and you've let me down and I have a basically unusuable printer.

      The most common solution is to increase the heat by about 10 C.

      After all I'm very disappointed with the micro.
      First print last year shifted during the print in back direction.
      Next ones worked with smaller objects, but 2 out of 4 prints have shifts.

      After a while the ***** thing could not print anything. First thought the noodle is jammed - but after detaching the head there was filament between the feeder and noozle , so the feeder could not forward anything to noozle. Cleaned it, after a while same problem. New noozle - same problem. New fan - worked for a while (lets say 5 prints worked - the best run yet).Then again the shifts. And the jamming - it worked to leave the head open instead of closed so i think it is a bit of a termal problem. With less temperature the material does not come out fluent on the noozle. Great. (Original black pla and pie - the original HPA was never working, ABS never working).

      Distance to print bed is also mostly not working correclty - so i think i had more calibrations then succesful prints. One of the "funniest" things was that it pushed the hot noozle through the buildtek... During one of the calibrations the head was pushed against the back top border - very sad sound. Since then i had no working print. In z axis the printer makes noisy sounds. From forward to back it jumps really often somewhere during the print.

      Well - i think i cleaned the y direction - but it didn't get really well. If it prints something the thing is mostly skipping at a height between 0 and 1 cm. If i print a circle mostly an egg is the result.

      Overall - internal feeding never worked good. external was only working for the outer part of a roll - inner seemed either to tight or tangles.

      I think i reall yhad all problems that i tried to avoid buying a "complete" printer - and i can't see a solution to this issues . Maybe if i try a 3d printer again it will be something which can be self build ...

      My first printer died, and was replaced, woot.
      My second m3d has produced far more piles of filament and aborted prints than completed ones :(
      But, I learned a lot about 3d printing with it, and can now feel more confident about a $2500 or so printer.
      But I agree with Matt, I cannot recommend this printer to anybody, for anything. I got like 5 things out of it and 100+ attempts (many of those same 5 things).

      @ Graeme, the thoughts and views on Reddit are interesting re this news:

      I can't recommend M3D to anyone based on my own (Or many others) experiences with this printer.

    38. M3D LLC 2-time Creator on May 27

      Try increasing the temperature by 10 degrees or lowering the nozzle a bit, you should just be able to slid a single sheet of paper between it and the bed. Contact us here and we can get you some more detailed one on one support.

      @ M3D, the printer is pointless because when printing it always comes out of the base which means i can never print, i am not sure how to solve this problem?
