  • I have an Ender 3, it works much better than this printer. Watch Strange Parts on YouTube, he was sent a review printer and couldn’t get it to print despite being on call with the inventor/CEO himself for hours to debug it. Also, Ender 3 had a fire risk with the bed power/PSU connector too.

    From the CEOs perspective, doing this he can at least get the Kickstarter backers their money back since they likely couldn’t get the printer to a good state given all the issues.

    The whole ecosystem here in the West doesn’t favour starting up. It’s not easy to do it in China either, but the whole supply chain is there (as such also the knowledge/support) and the business environment makes it more likely for it to happen there.

    Agreed, and don’t forget how important it is how much cheaper skilled labor is in China.
