The Tiko 3D Printing Project is officially dead

Another dead Kickstarter project, one that was originally set to ship in late 2015.



Read more on Tiko 3D's official closure.

Are you into them for more than just the shipping Mark?

Sucks tbh.

Lost like £190 on this. Won't be backing another Kickstarter like this again.

I'm not hopeful to get anything out of them. This project has been a huge disappointment. I will try and find out if they plan on doing anything for the people they frankly conned out of their postage money, but I am not hopeful that I will get anywhere.

Thanks to this project I now know not to spend money on Kickstarter for anything other than board games. Board games are often feature complete by the Kickstarter stage, only needing money to pay for printing initial orders (not much room for failure).

The company has to had to have at least managed to manufacture something IMO.
This is the reason they failed, completely naivety when it came to production.

I recently backed a project called Makerbuino and projects like that can restore some faith. There was literally a couple of months between project ending and me receiving exactly what was promised.

The only time I have ever been stung online was when I bought Cherry OS. It was a G4 Apple OS emulator and was supposed to be much better than Pear OS, faster than Pear OS and turned out to be Pear OS. IIRC I lost about $30 pre ordering it. I did get the emulator eventually, but it was stolen code from Pear OS and just a re-skin rip off.

Never again.
