Unfortunately not, there are links in the campaign to what I used and can be sourced from Ebay or Aliexpress. The reason for this is to reduce project complexity. The expansion mods are there to Show what else the Proforge is capable of. I will however be providing instruction on how to do them, they will be made available on our website.
Firstly VAT is only applicable to UK and EU countries and will come to 20% of your pledge. However if you are purchasing as a company and can provide A VAT number then you do not have to pay this tax.
Shipping is calculated using parcel2go.com with these parameters: shipping from the UK, 25KG Parcel weight and 60 x 50 x 30 cm Parcel dimensions. These are maximum estimates and may vary when it comes time to ship.
Shipping estimates for some countries (cheapest options):
USA - £68.39
UK - £9.78 (inc VAT)
Germany - £12.71 (inc VAT)
Canada - £68.72
If the Proforge is your very first 3D Printer then I’d recommend clearing out a weekend for getting it up and running. One day for the physical build and second day for wiring, software and calibration. If however your familiar with RepRap style 3D Printers then you should be able to have the Proforge up and running with in a day. The physical build taking up most of the time.
If the Proforge is designed almost entirely from off the shelf parts, when bought in bulk the price comes down and sourcing is relatively easy too because the components are so common place on the market. The major advantage to this is not just a great price but also that if a part were to fail over time the user can easily find a replacement from Ebay or AliExpress.
150 is the number I am confident I can provide in the timeline outlined and is also the upper limit of the number of people I’m willing to cater for at the moment to give the best possible experience of Makertech 3D. Limiting the campaign like this also prevents any chance of it becoming over subscribed and everyone's experience of the project being a negative...a problem that has plagued many other large projects.
