Where is local for local pickup? Sorry to hear you have to sell.
Just to help people out.. where are you located? So people will know what shipping method they need to use.
Sorry to hear it though...
Colin.. same question lol asked at the same time
Oops! Portland, Oregon, USA.
One hour up and still not sold?!
lol all of our money was spent on getting our own with the all the upgrades...
I'd ebay that...I'd think you'd make more than that
Tstark has the right idea.. ebay is probably your best bet and bang for the buck. Good luck.
If I didn't have 4 printers and a wife...I'd buy it..
Oh ok got it, the wife is the problem not the 4 printers...
Lol.....your words not mine....
Seems like it is a common 'problem' LOL
Im honestly surprised this hasn't sold yet. I feel like its a good deal.
Thanks, me too!
Probably people have no idea how to assess whether it is a good deal or not. You need to be a bigbox insider, have followed the kickstarter, know pricing and new releases inside-out etc. to be able to make sense of the offer...
Yes, I suspect this is the case.
As a recent follower of the BigBox I did look at this sale to see if it made sense for me as even though it isn't exactly what I wanted, it might have made sense to start there and upgrade.
But by the time I've tried to figure out the differences between the Kickstarter product and the current products on sale it becomes very hard to see that it is actually a 'good deal'.
Just to be clear I'm not saying it isn't a good deal I just can't see any numbers anywhere that help me see why it is a good deal
Nearest I could calculate it was pretty much the same price as I'd pay for a new one shipped to the USA, now that may be wrong and probably is, but based on avilable information I'd suspect many others are reaching the same potentially wrong conclusion which will not be helping the sale, so perhaps more information to help people figure out why it is a good deal might help it sell...
It's available to be delivered to your house in however long it takes the shipping company to get it there. I think, at this point in BB production, that's probably a hook for those who don't want to wait. Not sure besides that ... doesn't seem to be any other carrot.
Carrot: This setup is $1590 through the E3D website. So you save $300-$400 and the 8 week wait.
No carrot: E3D actually sets you up with a Titan extruder at that price now. I think you'll be hard pressed to find a buyer for version 1.0 when they're distributing 1.1 with Titans now. Therefore most people who want one wouldn't mind spending the extra and getting it directly from e3d. Plus they have the flexibility to get upgrades without having to pay extra shipping cost.
Edit: I dont think you should sell through ebay. You will be at a loss after they take their commission. Maybe advertise at your local hackerspaces or even your local craigslist.
Shouldn't be too much of a loss via EBay as the price is higher on there ($1429) than the offer here, but again that reduces the incentive to buy vs ordering new.
