      you people have still not responded to my problem. I have a lemon. I want my money you have stolen from me. Your product or alleged toy printer is a scam. It does not work. It was for my friends 7 year old child. You stole money from me. You created a useless and defective machine. I do not care of your inherent problems of not only delivery issues. but, you made in china product is defective. I want my money back. I want a refund. This is absolutely unfortunate. You are not the only company to do this. Take the money and then what. You need to read the lemon law act and you need to look at your warranty as it does not apply to a lemon. I want my money. I sent you a payment request. You have ignored it. I am writing here as it is a close forum for those of us who paid money for a working product. I have read your website. This is nothing like what your website states.That is fraud. It is unfortunate.

      I pledged silver color of The Micro. In addition, I've added the option to it. However, I'm not paying the optional price yet.
      How should I pay the optional price? And, when can I receive them?

      where is my printer?

    4. Creator Ashay Humane 4 days ago

      There has been no update for ages. If there are genuine issues then say so. Else make a refund.

      Still waiting :(

    8. Creator Mr. PACG on November 12

      Looks like they have livechat support active again. Might be a good way for you to check on the status of your printer. (bottom right corner if on a desktop/laptop)

      I clicked to chat and asked about any news on a new version of their software. A livechat agent response was almost immediate.

    9. Creator Avinash Chukkapalli on November 11

      I would like to request a refund for my backing immediately. Its a shame that the promise you showed for the kickstarter was never there.

    10. Creator Rodolfo Rod Ronzoni on November 11

      I realize that the order on your website is incomplete. No more infos needed.

      Best regards

    11. Creator Rodolfo Rod Ronzoni on November 11

      Hi guys,

      I still didn't receive your product. Could I have an update on how I can get my Micro?

      Many thanks.

    12. Creator Daamon Bintz on November 9

      Where is my silver Micro? Emails bounce back and I can't log in to the website anymore.

    13. Creator Zachary V. Whitten on November 4

      My small elementary school pledged to this Kickstarter project, with an estimated delivery of November 2014. Is there a way to get an updated estimate on the expected delivery date?

    14. Creator Cellin Gluck on November 2


      I have yet to receive my Micro. It has been a year and a half since you collected my funds and I have nothing to show for it.
      I'm glad to see that others have been receiving their units, but can you please let me know when I might expect mine?
      Thank you.

    15. Creator Stefan Roesch on November 1

      I was a November back, filled out the survey, and still haven't received a Micro. Is there something else I need to do? Everyone else seems to have their's and have been looking forward to this for awhile.


    16. Creator Airborne Gonzo on November 1

      @Sandy. I had the same issue, i had to uninstall the m3d software and printer drivers, then re-install in order to get the printer to take a new model.

    17. Creator b. i. hayden on November 1

      Same like me Sandy.
      I have had 2 defective printers. I got a threatening email personally and to my business. Both unethical. It is sad that this toy as to be given as a present to my friends kid. This toy is what it is..but, a defective consumer grade product is legally bound by law. I want my money/refund. Period. Your threats are what they are. Ignoring your responsibility say the least.....pathetic and disappointing. DEFECTIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    18. Creator Mathieu Bergeron on October 28

      Never received mine. Is that normal?

    19. Creator Sandy Dmyterko on October 23

      Why have you not replied to my email telling you about my defective M3D printer. I told you it keeps trying to print the same model even when another model was selected. That due to having to reduce the first model it prints a full size model and went over the edge of my plate and burnt a hole in the plastic frame. It also embedded a line in the plate and caused the ABS ink to go through the plate and out the holes in the backside of the plate. I am unable to delete that model out of my printer. I have deleted the model from my computer and emptied my trash can to delete the model and nothing works. My printer is useless if I can not get it to print anything else.

    20. Creator Corey Stup on October 21

      I was in the February backer group, and just received my printer (black) last Tuesday. I've not had a chance to try it yet.

    21. Creator Daniel Egger on October 16

      How do I get my Backer ID and Backer Tier Month?
      Thank you.

      Sweet! Now it's not accepting the password I used to login despite me saving it in my settings!

    25. Creator Nissia on October 14

      awh, despite all the lies I heard from The Micro support Visa actually agreed their "well, we miscalced the costs but let you pay them for us" policy is sufficient grounds for chargeback.

    26. Creator Mason on October 13

      Just thought it was neat to see one KS using a product from another KS.

    27. Creator Mason on October 13

      I've already sold my Micro, so don't bash on me, but here's another company on Kickstarter using the Micro for prototyping their project... (first link to page, second link directly to pic of micro they're using...……

    28. Creator Angela Tsilibakis on October 13

      I tried their website as they requested, was told I'd get my printer still nothing. Delivery was supposed to be in January. I fear I have been robbed with this one.

    29. Creator Brandon Cowsert on October 12

      Thanks for the heads-up. I'll just stick with their website then. *sigh*

    31. Creator Brandon Cowsert on October 10

      I was part of the November 2014 delivery. Not only have I not received the printer, I have not even received justification as to why.I signed up on your webpage/portal. I make it all the way through to Payment Details. I click on secure payment form and without fail it fails. "The following errors have occurred.

      (5) A valid amount is required." Could you explain how I'm supposed to finish the process?

    32. Creator James Verity on October 10

      the quantity of spam says alot about the company running the Micro3D... just shoddy all the way...

    33. Creator James Hobbs on October 8

      @Reinhard - it came quick and had tracking which was good, had to pay $25 shipment - not so good. The link they sent with the fan indicates it is the old type.

    34. Creator Reinhard Mitschang on October 8

      @James: when I was in need of a new fan, M3D-support was super-fast. They answered within 3 minutes and 5 minutes later I had a tracking-number for the new fan. It was delivered in Europe in the same week.

    35. Creator James Hobbs on October 8

      That's not all that needs sorting out, ordered new fan and checked web link sent with fan to ID fan and it appears they sent me the old style fan! Support is slow, software updates seem to have dried up, no responses to emails. Starting to wonder if M3D now having difficulties....

    36. Creator John Fehr on October 8

      I was supposed to have one of the first, shipping back in November of last year but I haven't heard anything about it. Any way to get an update?

    37. Creator Sten Kroonenberg on October 7

      @creator Please sort out your forum. Full of spam!

    38. Creator Mr. PACG on October 5

      Not that you give two sh|ts about your forum but it has been over run by spam. Your forum platform (Vanilla forum) is a joke. NO professional company wold use that platform because it sucks. It's a novice move to use a forum with no useful spam controls and not to have moderators taking care of the forum. ‪#‎lame‬
      Over 14 (FOURTEEN) full pages of new spam this morning.

      Printer doesn't calibrate using their software. Just tried to print and it attempts to go through the Base plate, seems to have wrecked the plate and possibly the printer head. What a useless waste of money.

    40. Creator Kevin Shoulars on September 30

      I haven't heard anything about my Micro. How do I find out when it will be shipped?

    41. Creator Lisa Grady on September 29

      I still have not received my Micro, although the supposed shipment date was January 2015. Please help me solve this problem as I eagerly await this revolutionary printer.


    42. Creator Steef de Jong on September 24

      Yes it is possible to print gcode generated by other slicers.

    44. Creator Goswin von Brederlow on September 21

      Can the Micro3D print simple gcode files or only it's own format? What other formats does it understand?

    45. Creator James Verity on September 21

      @Paul Hiscoe , @Tamir E. , @Tawez - dont worry with the Micro3D in its current state it will never get in the UK (EU) retail market... no retailer in there right mind will touch it... only one that might is PileofCrapWORLD, they tend to be dealers in rubbish or discontinued tech... they'd also love to sell warranties for the micro, not sure theyd want to fix all of them though...

      We finally received our printer (I owe M3D an apology too because I think we would have received it sooner had our profile not had an amazon error). My kids (14, 12, 10 at the time) kickstarted this project with their Christmas money and, I will say, although we were frustrated with the delays, M3D delivered in spectacular fashion and made good on their commitment. Having met this crew in NY, I can tell you first hand, they are a great group of folks and are working their butts off to not only do right by their backers but, deliver a product that meets expectations. Our kids LOVE their new printer. Yes, we had calibration issues and have a few burn marks and grooves now on the platform to show for our learning curve but, they do not interfere with functionality. We've had the printer going non-stop for about two weeks now and, it has performed beautifully. Thank you for making the Kid's Back To School awesome. As a side note… an oil painter's metal paint spatula is PERFECT for removing your handiwork from the platform.

    47. Creator M3D LLC on September 19

      Hey Guys, please email us at using the email you used to back kickstarter if you haven't received your printer rather than commenting. It will allow us to look your order up properly and keep proper records of your requests. There have been a large number of hardware and software changes over the last year and this means that Kickstarter Micros can have issues that are now fixed. If you have had any issues with your Micro, please contact our tech support at We'll be sure to work with you to fix the issues. Please keep in mind we are working on quite a large software update to improve known software issues. Most issues can be resolved without a hardware repair. Thanks again for your support and patience. We will continue to support you. Just contact us by email and someone will respond quite shortly. We've reduced our average response time quite dramatically to about 4 to 12 hours. - David

      In july you said "Currently now our international shipments are unfortunately still being delayed. Just like we mentioned in our April Mega Update (, we will start enabling the payment feature for our international backers after we finalize the fulfillment plans for each country - our team is currently still in the process of resolving the complexities of international shipping. Though you should be expecting the invite that your payment feature has been enabled."
      You have any solution?

    49. Creator Tamir E. on September 19

      Finally (FINALLY) received my printer and got it working. I managed to calibrate it and start a print...when that print failed due to a lack of filament being squeezed out, I reset it and recalibrated. That gave a good but very small print. I tried again the next day -after a PC shutdown and recalibrated again. This time it jammed the hot nozzle into the bed and went about tearing up my printer bed as it tried to print. That calibration feature is pretty useless if its not calibrating! Glad I stopped it in time or it probably would have wrecked the printer. I feel like I just got a $300 dumb toy that doesnt work 2/3 of the time.
