MakiBox - A Complete 3D Printer for $200

The MakiBox A6

MakiBox Home Page 

A friend just pointed out to me that the 3D Printer upstart "MakiBox" which was crowd funded earlier this year, opened its online store on Christmas Day. 

They have their mini-flagship complete printer set for sale at $200... WHAT!? eye popping smiley 

The printer is tiny but still manages a build area of 110mm x 150mm x 90mm (X,Y,Z). The $200 version does not have a heated bed; there is a $300 that does.



There are videos of the prototype makibox printing; notice that it does not use belts (goodbye backlash?) 

At this very low price, it seems hard to be the loser in this deal. It would seem that even if you just used the printer for parts, you would end up with 4 stepper motors, a printr-board, and a Bowden Extruder... 



Buying one now smiling smiley 

I will report back to let you know if I was robbed or got an awesome deal winking smiley

It still has not come yet! The maki box site does continue to make progress posts though :)

Did it come yet? If so was it hard to put together?

Thanks!

Did you ever receive yours? (I want to purchase one, but read about problems)

https://store.makibox.com/#/product-detail?type=1&&option=30 Here is the store link for the machine, but I think the author for this post has abandoned the thread.

They have also posted this comment on the question of "are you shipping" ....

http://makibox.com/faqreader/items/are-you-shipping-already so it seems very real and it is shipping. When I Google search there is no indication that anyone has had any problems with Makibox, but I cannot find a review either.

If you would like to find a cheap 3d Printer here is an article that lists some bargain choices. Makibox is also on the list. I am not affiliated with any 3D printer company and/or publication ... but if anyone wants to hire me post it here because I am following this thread (sorry for the shameless self-promotion). :)

Alas, your list of bargain printers link wasn't in your post. However I was looking at some lists like this one http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/affordable-3d-printer/# and others that suggest you can get these printers (not only Makibox) but you actually cannot... I also cannot find some good reviews of the Makibox.

Their facebook page is a good place to look ( <a href = "https://www.facebook.com/Makible" ). A lot of complaints about the delivery, or actually about the non-delivery!! The Makibox team suggests that outstanding 2014 orders are to be completed this May (2014).

I guess I'll just wait for the month of May to finish and then check their facebook page again for costumer posts!

sorry about the link not making it, but it is the link you reference --->>

http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/affordable-3d-printer/#

that I was referring to. If I were going to invest my money in an inexpensive 3d Printer I would lean towards this one before any others. The crowd-funding interest detail of information provided by the designers make me want to bookmark this one. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/m3d/the-micro-the-first-truly-consumer-3d-printer if anyone else has any better tips on bargain 3d printers, please post them here.

I was a $299 backer of that, but considering the rate at which these million and up oversuccesfull project deliver I decided to look for one that has its delivery already working (with community opinions about the quality of order fullfilment and product performance).

May 8, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterK_B

Makibox is probably filing bankruptcy soon. In any way things arent going well over there:
