We€™ll do our best to make our warranty policy as forthcoming as possible and who knows, it may not even be that bad. 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 a Photocentric 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 Photocentric or your official point of sale for the UK and Ireland, 3DGBIRE Ltd. Our technical support team is always happy to help in isolating the cause of a problem, finding parts and providing solutions. By phone and email we are available at your command.
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 Photocentric, 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 Photocentric from getting hurt. Easy right?
Photocentric also offers life-time support through email and phone. If you€™re in need of warranty support, please get in touch with 3DGBIRE Ltd. See, now that wasn€™t too bad was it? Up next is the official legal information.
