Although the signs of impending doom were evident since late last Fall, Solidoodle formally announced end of operations on March 28. You can read Sam Cervantes’ message to the Solidoodle community here: http://www.solidoodle.com/blog.html
As I expected, the Press was cited as a major reason for their demise. You can check my previous blog posts for my experience with an early released unit. This was a smart looking machine with miserable performance, although with time it did get better – but never close to my Solidoodle2, which continues to run even today (albeit with some needed modifications).
So another 3D printer manufacturer closes its doors. Sam doesn’t say what he is planning to do now that his company is gone, but I wish him luck in his future endeavors…
