I met up with Pirate3D, the makers of the Buccaneer 3D printer, to hear more about the status of their company after their phenomenally successful Kickstarter which raised $1,438,765. I learned that they will shipping the first batch of Kickstarted printers in January and the final batch in April. They are currently taking preorders for the Buccaneer for $597, but that the price will go up in May / June to $897 to account for distribution costs.
