Contact us!

Whether you’re having a problem with something you bought from us, or just have some questions, we’re always happy to help. Whenever you have a question, just head over to support.mbot3d.com to get in touch with our team.

We do our best to get back to you as soon as possible and offer email service Monday-Friday. You should receive a response within 2 to 3 business days. We also schedule live chat support sessions via Skype as needed. Start a support case with us, and if we can’t resolve it quickly via email, we’ll be happy to talk to you.

Warranty:

We'll do our best to make our warranty policy as forthcoming as possible. We've decided to offer you information about warranty in two parts - both on this page. The first part is written as user friendly as possible. The second part is the official legal warranty information. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.

When you buy an MBot3d product, you're entitled to free technical support for as long as you use it. First, there's always our forum that enjoys a great culture of helping and sharing from very experienced makers. Most of them are very technically minded and only too happy to help. They have been the origin of the foundation that grew to be our detailed support pages that are available at your convenience. And lastly, but by no means least, is MBot3d or your official point of sale. Our technical support team is always happy to help in isolating the cause of a problem, finding parts and providing solutions. By email we are available at your command.

Let’s start with the MBot Cube Kit. Because it's a DIY-kit, we can't guarantee it will work first time (one missed screw makes all the difference). But what we can guarantee is that we're always on hand to give you technical knowledge and experience that'll get you printing in no time. And the really good news is that we provide a 1 Year warranty on electronics, stepper motor and extruder but the replacement shipping cost will be charged.

As an open source company, we really encourage hacking and modifying, but as you might expect, we can't be held responsible for any modifications that significantly change the way your MBot3d, or that specific part, works. So here’s the boring part, these heavily modified parts won't be covered by the warranty. But that’s probably not a surprise. However, we’re always available to help you work things out.

Using third party or alternative filaments won't void your warranty, but here's the catch, you have to stay within the restrictions for 3D printing setup by the firmware. These restrictions are designed to protect your MBot3d from getting hurt.

Next up, the MBot Grid II+ and MBot Mini. We're so confident about its build quality that we provide a 1 Year warranty on electronics, stepper motor and extruder but the replacement shipping cost will be charged.

When it comes to parts, MBot3d has your back. However, the world of 3D printing is innovating at a crazy speed, so we won’t always continue to have all older generation parts in stock. This could mean you need upgrade to a new part to solve a problem. But rest assured, we’ll never leave you in the dark and will do our best to find a solution.

MBot3d also offers lifetime support through email. There's also our awesome community with plenty of knowledge to help you out when you're in need. If you're in need of warranty, support, please get in touch with your local supplier or technical support team via email support@mbot3d.com. You can visit our reseller page to find one of our partners near you.
