      Another failed Kickstarter project... glad to have these sorts of reminders around in my backed history, to remind me why I never throw my money away again and just skip Kickstarter altogether, especially since creators don't care who they rip off and Kickstarter doesn't care about backers at all

      I also demand a full refund of my pledge amount including the cost of shipping.

      I just wish that they had some grain of ethics and when they abandon the business. They could have posted a firmware update to change the printer into a "standard" 3dprinter.

      Figured might as well try, I doubt anything will come of it. They already stated they have no money, and that they officially disbanded the company. Like with all companies, it’s not the employees who owe us, it’s the business, and if the business is gone, then so is the debt.

      "Unfortunately no, I've moved on to work elsewhere, there is no one left at P3D.

      Seriously? So they absolutely lied and can't even end this with a sorry?!!! How did they lose $1.4 million USD? I'm guessing they didn't... they must have just walked away with it all. I don't buy the story they gave originally as to what happened. I mean, the whole time they've been selling Buccaneers on Amazon and eBay. Can someone find these men and bring them to justice in whatever country they fled to. Make the courts there pay us back!

      Some one posted this a while ago to a google groups thought I would pass it along, its instructions on how to convert your buccaneer to a "normal" 3d printer usable by any standard slicer .. http://reprap.org/wiki/BucSid

      They deleted their Facebook page. But they still have the printer listed on amazon for sale. I just wish there was a way to convert it to an open system now that their closed system is dead. My printer would not be so useless (because of no temp control).

      It would be laughable if so much money wasn't involved. Extract from the last update (Oct 2016)

      "Our Commitment

      We remain committed to this project despite the many challenges we have encountered. We do not want to walk down the path of projects that failed and whose owners washed their hands and walked away.

      What we have proposed is the most realistic way forwards. It will take a long time to accomplish our obligation to you though we remain committed to our obligation and will do our best to deliver on our promise. "

      Kickstarter should be held accountable for reporting this as a San Francisco startup instead of an overseas pirate venture that took the money offshore and outside US laws.

    39. Charles Fu on August 8, 2017

      what's so difficult to hunt down Brendan and ensure he'll never make it in life after pirating away our hard earned money?
      There's linkedin, facebook. Dig him out, tell his employer, destroy his reputation. That's the minimum you could do if you want to revenge on the pirates.

      If not, suggest all of you to keep quiet and suck it up.

      FWIW to backers that never got your printer, Pirate3D is no longer approving uploads to Treasure.is so this ecosystem is functionally dead. With no way to print new objects, the Buccaneer is utterly useless.

      If you haven't already done this.. Just go to the bottom of the campaign page and report this project. I did and got some half assed answer from Kickstarter.. At least they can remove the project and officially let all the backers know that they have been scammed instead of leaving this sham up like it's still a project.

    48. Dale Craven on June 7, 2017

      I'm on my third 3D printer (PowerSpec Ultra 3D, Original Prusa i3 MK2s assebled, and an Original Prusa kit. I'm now learning to build a Prusa clone right now. All before I ever got the first 3D printer that I backed. From what I know now, I would not have liked the closed system of the Buccaneer anyway. I wonder if they can just ship me the 10 rolls of filament that I ordered with the printer. I could at least use that.

      After the long spiel about how they were building a new version of the Buccaneer and were selling these on Amazon and other places to make up the money to make the new Buccaneer so they could ship that instead to backers, now we hear from someone that received an email from Pirate3D that they are broke again and cannot do anything except teach people how to 3D print... Serious fraud here. No way they lost over $1.4 Million and only shipped a few. Kickstarter needs more protection.
