Be a member of the panel of product testers. Do you REALLY want to be part of this ? You'll need to have a 3D printer capable of reaching a nozzle temperature of almost 300°C and be willing to risk putting a new material through it to become one of up to ten product testers that helps us reach the next stage. We'll give you a spool of 3D printer filament from our new pilot plant and ask you to contribute to the final product development.

Superbacker ! Not only will you get the other rewards (apart from product test panel membership), but you will also get a 2 for 1 deal on filament every month for a year when we get to production.
