    Today Pirate3D announced that they are not going to include all of the promised specs from their Kickstarter campaign opening themselves up to potential lawsuits from their Kickstarter backers. At this point even if they ship the stripped down version they can be sued for not completing their promised goals. Then when backers ask for clarification or a refund they are insulted in a backhanded way and called stupid for wanting to pull out. So Pirate3D makes promises they cannot keep, uses lame spinspeak excuses for pulling support for ABS and then calls you names for not wanting their product…… let them know what you think folks dont order it unless they fix it!! This may be a company headed for the graveyard at this rate!!

    One thing they forgot to mention in their comparison to Makerbot, is that The Buccaneer is made in China with unskilled labor and Makerbot is made in New York, USA.
