STRUCTUR3D PRINTING ON ITS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT YEAR.
One day you find yourself tinkering in your workshop, trying to make something happen. Then Kickstarter happens and suddenly you have hundreds of people telling you they believe in your idea. The validation is something you’ve never felt before. What happens next is a marriage between you and your backers - bound by the promise of delivering a quality product.
A Happy Belated Canada Day to All!
Hey everyone, just a quick update for today. We are currently midway through shipping Batch 3 and have less than 100 units to go to wrap up fulfillment. The plan is to ship the rest of the Discov3ries over the next few weeks.Thank you everyone for being part of this process. We will update next when all of the units are out of the door.
New Discov3ries in the World
There are now a number of people using their Discov3ries for the very first time! This Kickstarter backer did a video log of his introduction to 3D Paste Printing: AWESOME!
Units heading your way next week!
Hello everyone. We apologize for the delay in getting this update out for you. Our team hit a bit of a slowdown over the last couple weeks due to our need to scale our staff, resulting in a backlog of nearly completed units sitting on the production line. As such, we were not able to hit our goal of getting Production Batch 1 out of the door this last week. For that we apologize. Your support has meant so much to us over this last 8 months and your patience is endlessly appreciated. Please see the note below about the new additions to the team to help us get your Discov3ry to you faster. We have just about caught up with production of that particular part and are planning to ship the majority of Batch 1 next week.
Get Past3d! Video Series
As some of you may have already noticed, we have begun a paste printing video blog accessible on our YouTube channel. All the topics behave as tutorials on a particular project and should help you better understand and harness the full capability of the Discov3ry Extruder. Watch for tips on print settings, materials, post processing, and more.
Tapping Gears, Printing Parts, and Soldering Wires
Our manufacturing space is in full swing preparing for the next batch of orders. We are currently waiting on a few key parts to arrive before we can begin constructing the bulk of the units. All the parts are en route to our facility as I type this out. Thank you everyone for your patience.
Join the Conversation
As the first users, you have become developers and your expertise is invaluable to the maker community. We encourage you to share your experiences through the Structur3d forum.You may have questions on how to install and print with the Discov3ry; alternatively, you could provide tips and help other users. A couple early Beta Backers have already begun uploading content.
Shipping is Steady
Over the last week a number of Discov3ries have gone out of our doors and they are en route to their new homes as we speak. Our target is to ship all the Beta units by the end of next week after which full scale shipping will commence. We put together an un-boxing video of the first package if you are keen to see what it will look like and the full press release can be read here.
Very First Beta Units Have Shipped!
Yesterday the whole Structur3d team hand delivered a Discov3ry to one of our Beta backers. It was a momentous occasion for us. Once again we would like to thank you for being a part of our journey. Units have started shipping out the door today fully tested and ready for action.
First Beta Units Shipping Early Next Week!
The moment we at Structur3d Printing have all been waiting for is finally here. Completed units are going through the last bout of rigorous testing for quality after which they will be securely packed and shipped to you! We appreciate your patience at this final stage of our Kickstarter fulfillment.
