Beautiful design, the right features and specs, and a seasoned team of pros that really looks like it can pull this off. Most professional and detailed Kickstarter presentation ever. Working prototypes that look 90% ready to go, and sample prints that look great. I'm in.

Hello Ben, You will have an example of our "hi res print" tomorow on our Kickstarter page. And a description of pva as well.

Hopefully they didn't jump the gun here with the PR. It's going to get buried before the kickstarter begins. Beginning to really hate no one showing hi res print examples.... It's a printer. It prints PVA cool!.... What is PVA exactly?
