@caleb: Their goal was $5,000, they got $73,000. That is a success!


I mean, did they ever succeed commercially -- can I go out and buy one?

Here's a cool new one capable of doing quad filament. Unfortunately I don't think they got enough coverage. They end soon and they're only half way there!

@Caleb: I like the $100 dual haed upgrade for any printer -- how did that Kickstarter project turn out? Did they succeed?

The dual heads. All over their site and twitter they keep saying their the first dual head. It looks like a decent affordable printer, but that kind of speak is just irritating. It is so far from being the first that it is silly.  

 

Find your strong points and brag. Maybe they're the cheapest? easiest to use? who knows. They're not the first though.

@Caleb: That is a peculiar feature for them to boast about. Makerbot and several reprap varieties have been doing this for years now.

What feature are you talking about? The dual heads or the inbuilt camera?

Here are a few links for your personal amusement.

FFD dual head printer

Makerbot Replicator

Mbot dual head

 

How about a $100 dual head upgrade for any printer?
