    I saw this today in the 3d printing google+ groups. Lots of 3d printers on kickstarter and lots have failed. Looking past that, the list of clues to look out for is just as applicable here.

    Hope we pass all of those checkpoints! Just trying to expand our location to double the size. We run this place for the community in our spare time with our personal games and we are getting to crowded with our weekly traffic

    Why would anyone buy a 3D printer from a company started by a couple college kids that is going to be nonexistent for support and updates within a couple years? There certainly are enough established 3D printer brands to choose from. Kickstarter is great for things where the design is the hard part, manufacturing is the easy part like board games or multitools. I learned my lesson after kickstarting an espresso machine that never delivered. I'll wait for release on complex electronics, I'll never kickstart one again.
