• M3D at SWSX, 3D Printed Shoes, Tough 3D Ink® and More

    Posted in Cool on Mar 14, 2017

    The M3D team travelled to Austin, TX for SXSW and wanted to share some of our favorite pictures. These shoes can be 3d printed in mass cheaply with today's technology and they're actually really comfortable. Is this a game changer? Will they be the next Jordan air? Looking out from our booth.

  • The M3D Pro Update 6: Progress, Surprises, and Backer Survey

    Posted in News & Announcements on Jan 25, 2017

    We’ve been working hard to collect accurate and detailed information across all of our departments to give you this single January update. We have completed vetting and testing about 95% of the Pro’s components at production volume. The basic Pro firmware and software have been put in place, and we have seen the Pro complete good prints. This may sound simple, but in fact represents the culmination of all of the integration needed between the software, electronics, engineering, sourcing, and assembly teams. We now see that the core Pro engineering and electronics design are fundamentally finalized for full-scale production. This is despite us not having the all-important autocorrection feature enabled yet, which was in the plans to be finished around the time of the market tier release. We believe the Pro results will show themselves at their best in 2-3 months when the printer has most of its systems fully enabled and optimized.

  • Using 3D Printing to Make Strong Plastic Parts

    Posted in Helpful, M3D Answers on Jan 23, 2017

    Someone reached out to our M3D Pro community expressing interest in using a 3D printer for making spare parts for his veteran US car that are difficult to get. Replacements for the auto parts are likely to become one of the next frontiers for consumer 3D printing, especially for those looking to save (or even make) some money, as well as create parts that are otherwise not available on the market. We appreciate this application and just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to share some tips on how to use filament (3D Ink) based 3D printing as a tool for making extremely strong plastic parts for hardware, anchoring, fixing, enclosures, etc.

  • The M3D Pro Update 5: Status Update

    Posted in News & Announcements on Nov 30, 2016

    Greetings from the M3D team! We'd like to update everyone on the current status of your M3D Pro. At this time, we have over 110 parts at different stages in the pipeline. ALL of these parts are vetted, are fundamentally working, and are proven to be manufacturable. The majority of parts have been ordered in bulk and a few have already arrived! These parts are ordered in small batches and have to be shipped individually from each supplier. It is very important to us that each and every part is perfect so we can deliver a high quality product to you. We want to deliver the best Pro to everyone and, according to your feedback, that’s what you want too! To be able to do that, we need to get every part made by the manufacturers, rather than hand making them or painting SLS prototypes in house to get them to you sooner. What this means is that you'll be testing a unit that is very close to the final production units.

  • The M3D Pro Update 4: Questionnaire, Highlights, and Exciting News

    Posted in News & Announcements on Oct 25, 2016

    We have been working day and night the past few weeks to bring the Pro to fruition. We have tackled the challenges and made some exciting discoveries. The journey is coming to it's first major milestone as we begin the process of preparing the Early Release Tier. For this to happen, we need to hear from all our backers about their particular needs in a number of areas, including desired filaments with their order, and what colors we will need to stock up on to meet it. We also have many questions about accessories and payment preferences. We want to accommodate as many as possible, so please make sure you fill out our M3D Pro Filament and Accessory Questionnaire.
