I got one on the way as well! New goal, get good at Zbrush (actually its an old goal, but renewed interest)

They have sets of stretch goals that'll make this product even slicker. I really hope they pull it off. Adding the carbon Filter is awesome. Seems like a nobrainer but no one thinks about end users and the stink of this thing yet. First people to say , yes it can sit at your desk and you won't smell burning plastic/hair smell.

Adding ABS support was a stretch goal if they hit 1 million . They did , so there will be a heated plate, if they hit 1.3 million, another 300k, it'll be a nicer place, some other material than metal for even distribution. I hope they hit it.

The main content that talks about the product doesn't discuss the ABS changes.

That's why I like the built in print server. I can put it wherever the CAT5 or wireless reaches.

I've got a few statues lined up and ready to print once this thing comes out.

Besides a new heating bed at 1.3 million, they promise transparency support. So, everyone buy one haha

Even if it had to go to $450 or even $500, it seems a bargain. They seem to be getting more than enough funds to make this really happen.

Personally it sounds to good to be true. When you add materials, labour, R&D, overhead etc etc I dont see how they are making profit. Maybe $50
