Have a question?
@MakeX: Could we please get an Update and an forcast....
Hi , Do you start to ship? Do you have my address ?
any idea of shipping dates
@Anna, you ‘re right! My bad :-/ i loose the update through the mails, thanks for pointing that out :)
Hi, is there a way to still order PEI sheets so that they arrive with the printer. The indiegogo delivery time is August...
@Miguel, there was an update on March 9, did you miss it? It was a detailed one with pictures and video, pretty exciting =)
Last update was from December, please post an update in order to know how it's everything going. Thanks
Any official updates coming soon? We all quite excited, but would be nice too get some updates around how its going, possible estimates on shipping and anything else.
Have these shipped to the USA? I've still not received shipping notification yet.
I am super excited to get my Migo! But I was wondering when the programs for this migo, the generator, and possibly a phone app will come out?
@Inma Paya Poveda - We don't have your email yet. Can you leave you email add. via message in kickstarter?
@Inma Paya Poveda - Can you send us an email about your ID and info on indiegogo. We will check is. Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
@Austin Perzben - The Chinese Spring Festival is just finished. We are coming back to work. The Migo is about to produce. We will update pictures in factory.
@J Lam @Austin Perzben-Hi, the Migo will be delivered on schedule.
I am having problems in indiegogo website. I had selected my perk, which was a super early bird, and added my mail address a few months ago. Noe, when I log in there is no record of my cobtribution.
Can you help and give me a feedback regarding this issue?
kasper. there will be no updates for as least another week as it is new year in China.
Please give us an update. A new video of the machine printning or something like that.
@Austin Perzben, @J Lam
As much as I am eager for the printers to start shipping, I am much more excite that they are working on upgrades/improvements. It'll be hard but I would much rather wait for a quality product than a "just good enough" product. If I wanted a "just good enough" product. There are many options that I could choose right now.
@MakeX Please post an official update soon! I’m eager to hear news regarding the production stage! Congratulations again on the amazing project ad successful campaign, I can’t wait for my printer in July!!
@J Lam I doubt they will ship earlier than predicted, it would even make sense to see some delay in shipments since they are working on several updates and refining some design features.
Any chance shipping earlier than July?
@Bozidar Bajs - Of course you can.
@All backers- Hi, next week is the traditional Chinese New Year, the factory is almost empty, only R&D guys are still working. We will release update about software recently. Don't worry about the schedule.
When will the next update be published?
Are you still on schedule?
I‘m looking forward hearing from you guys!
When will the next proper update be posted?
@Migo - will we have option to change shipping adress before shipping?
@Wee Chang Liew- Hi there, before we deliver Migo, we will collect shipping fee, you can transfer money at that time.
I just realised that my pledge option doesn't come with heated bed. Any chance for an "upgrade"?
@MakeX Alright! Will look into it. Thanks!
@Manic Ooo... this sounds interesting! Maybe I can print more types of material with this. Thanks!
You can use a liquid to coat the bed - the cubex 3d printer does this. Any prints stick to this very thin layer of 'liquid glue'.
The price of a bottle is around £7.50 (I live in the UK).
@Raik @Bozidar Bajs - It is in the final test before mold production. Several parts are re-designed and improved, for example, adding filament sensor on its head, strengthening stiffness of the unibody.
@Hassen Ally - Thank you and happy new year.
@Jocelyn -Hi there, the heated bed allows you to print more kinds of materials on MIGO. Otherwise it is limited with several kinds, for example PLA.
@MakeX -do you have some new updates?
How is everything going? ^^
Happy 2018 to all.
This is the year I finally get my hands on my 1st very own 3d printer.
I have already thought about using a reptile light while printing and testing to see how it impacts strength. Not sure if it will help much, but if it does I'll be sure to post something in the forum later, heh.
I think they all have a heated bed. It is a standard feature.
There is a chance I am wrong though.
I’m on a tight budget so I’ve ordered the one without the heated bed, may I know what is the impact on the print?
Would it still be able to stick without the heated bed?
Ok, this changing process thing has my mouth watering a little.
I hope its worth the wait.
@Peter Igel @Eric - You are right. Thanks. We have a new changing process recently, and you will be rocked.
@Anton - You can generate gcode from Slic3r (or similar), and send file by our software.
what is the estimated delivery date
thanks a lot!
Lots of people who use PEI sheets say that it is the ultimate printing surface. It's sticky when you're heating it up and if the print is done you can easily remove the part from the bed. If you treat it with no sharp scraper or a knive to seperate parts from it, it will last hundreds of prints.
Anyway, I think it would be a pretty big plus for the MIGO printer if the changing process is as easy and convinient as possible if you have to do it. It would be the icing on the cake.
How long can I use a PEI sheet?
Great project! Really looking forward to getting my printer!
I have kind of the same problem as Eric Bitzer when it comes to changing the PEI on the bed, it is quite a hassle. Have you considered using ferrite or samarium cobalt magnetic strips those are both heat-resistant and would make it so easy to change PEI, granted the PEI sheets would be slightly more expensive.
Can I load Gcode from Slic3r (or similar) to printer? Will You provide profile for Migo?
Thanks for the fast response and the detailed answer!
One last thing: Can the printing bed be fully detached from the printer? Maybe by removing all four bolts at each edge of the bed and disconnect the plug from the heating element.
This would be very useful for cleaning and rinsing the bed without damaging any other parts like threats or electronic components.
