I’m not ever getting the MakiBox I paid for, am I, @Makible ?
You chose… Poorly. wishes he could put in the image of the Indiana Jones knight
You could still buy one a firm has taken control of the stock.
You’re a bit late Makible has long gone, I lost my money, too
Sorry, they’re long gone.
I know a backer that actually got one and he wasn’t happy with the design, it’s nowhere as sturdy as an external frame should have been. I understand that many backers didn’t even get one at all.
Makibox announced their dissolution over a year ago I think.
At least you didn’torder a Cobblebot. They’re suing their own customers.
I’d did actually receive my Makibox. Purchased with the intention of getting an inexpensive schooling on 3D printing. Spent a fair amount of time trying to address shortcomings with the linear motion, extruder and hotend. I did manage some relatively good prints, though when you’re constantly treating the symptoms rather than the cause… you’re better off putting time and resources into a “tried and tested” platform… After a few months I grabbed some lengths of Makerslide and OrdBot Hadron was born. There is no substitute for having a rigid foundation to build upon. I sincerely empathise with all of the paying customers left out of pocket with nothing to show. This was meant to be an affordable beginners foray in 3D printing…With a cup is half full outlook, if the Makibox fiasco din’t completely dissuade one’s enthusiasm and financial ability to acquire a first printer, you’re pretty much guaranteed that no matter what machine you purchase, it will be far superior to a Makibox.
I also got a used makibox as my first printer, and I just have finished my second self made machine, which prints much better than my makibox
If you are planning on getting a low cost printer that will actually get to you, and will print better than a makibox… Get a printrbot play.
@Camerin_hahn I’d say spring for the Printrbot Simple Metal. I think the build area of the play is too small. Only resin printers should have that tiny of a build area. The Simple Metal has much better possibilities. I will say the Play is beautifully and sturdily built. @Thomas_Sanladerer even stood on it while it was printing.
@Adam_Steinmark if he was okay with a makibox… The play should be enough.
I ordered the MakiBox two years ago, paid $300, nothing. Ordered the Printrbot Simple Metal last December and it’s the best thing ever
