      While stumbling on some products I backed I found out that I didn't get this one. How can I contact you guys for it ? Thanks

      We understand their may be an issue with the printer, We will correct it if there is but as we have said you have an expired warranty therefore the replacement is not free of charge. We do not make exceptions to the terms of sale and use that all backers agreed to.

      I have followed the steps that they have given me but still has now worked on various desktops and laptops.

      It is clearly a fault with the printer as windows is not even detecting it as a device and is showing that the device descriptor failed.

      I still don't see it being reasonable that I should have to pay $260 for a fault with the printer.

      We do not remote in on customers PC's for liability reasons. Our tech support team will have access to the tools and guides needed to resolve the issue or replace the unit if needed.

      I have tried to install the latest driver on e different laptops and desktops but it still fails.

      I was also given a link to one on Dropbox but this didn't work.

      Are you able to do a remote session?

    8. M3D LLC 2-time creator on March 17


      We would offer free replacement under warrenty only. The issue of your computer failing to connect is more likely an issue with the computer than it is with the Micro or it would have been discovered during the warrenty period. Ultimaker has the exact same policy. We are happy to provide service to you within the agree terms of sale.

      I would understand the charge is there was a human made issue with the printer but beings it's a fault with the main board inside i would have expected you to replace it without charge. I'm sure most other manufactures like ultimaker would have done this.

    10. M3D LLC 2-time creator on March 17


      We are happy to replace you Mirco, however you are out of warrenty and that means replacements are $150 (less than half the original MSRP of a Micro) and the additional costs are from shipping internationally, which we have no control over. I have no record of you claiming the wrong filament was sent but we would have corrected that right away had we known.

      Had a very bad experience with this project.

      it was over a year late and had the wrong filament.

      I have recently encountered an issue with the hardware on the printer and they have refused to replace it and will only do so if i pay 259 dollars which is basically the cost of the printer.

      I am still awaiting a response from them but have not been impressed by the project and product.

      All rewards were delivered to Backers that completed the survey. Your rewards are available and we will continue to attempt helping you with your computer problems in completing checkout as as we complete the survey for you at your request. All backers were required to pay for shipping. We are doing our best to aid you but the refund policy was clear toward pledges from the beginning of the campaign.

      I'm adding my name to the disgruntled, never got my printer list. Two years after I should have received my printer, and they're trying to get me to pay full price plus shipping for 3 year old tech, when they are shipping a new product next month.

      Their customer support is atrocious, and they have used Kickstarter as a means to refuse refunds. I refuse to spend any more money with them, but from what I've seen, I can expect to have a $324 paperweight once my 3 month warranty runs out.

      Never again, M3D. This was my biggest Kickstarter project mistake to date, and I've backed over 200.

      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.

    26. Graeme Bennett on August 14, 2016

      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.

    27. carl pabst on August 14, 2016

      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

      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.

      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.

      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 ...
