Shipping and Sales Policy

Payment Policy

When you place an order with Type A Machines, your credit card will be immediately charged for the full value of your order. You will receive an order confirmation shortly after placing your order. Unfortunately, bank policy prevents us from authorizing a charge and then charging the card when your order ships. This is because charge authorizations expire after six or seven days and, due to long lead times, orders frequently ship more than one week after an order is placed. We do not offer payment plans for individuals or businesses buying our products. Please contact us at for specific purchasing inquiries.

Return Policy

30 Day Return policy
Our first priority at Type A Machines is that you love your printer. Your printer will be shipped to you after it has run a series of prints and gone through testing so that we know it works. If you do have any problems with your printer, we want to know about them so we can do our best to fix them. Please contact us with any problems you have. Your Series 1 Printer ships with a 1 year limited warranty so many issues that come up can be handled under warranty.

If you would like to return your printer within 30 days from the shipping date please contact our support team to request a Return Merchanise Authorisation (RMA) number. 3D Printers will be accepted for refund if they are in like new condition, in factory packaging, with no substantial cosmetic or accidental damage or modifications. No refunds are available after 30 days from the date of shipping. Printers returned to Type A Machines without prior approval may not be accepted. Printers returned without prior approval within 30 days from the shipping date are subject to a 40% restocking fee, as they will have to be dismantled and re-tested. Printers returned to Type A Machines without prior approval after 30 days from the original ship date will not be refunded, and Type A Machines will treat the printer as surrendered for recycling.

Unfortunately we are not able to accept returns of filament or replacement parts at this time.

Choice of forum, choice of law

Type A Machines is a small California based company, and we're doing our best to keep our prices low. Therefore, we can‘t afford to travel to litigate.

Lead Times

At Type A Machines we do our best to keep the lead times published on the site current and accurate. However, lead times reflect our best estimate, and due to unforeseen circumstances, we may not always be able to meet them. For the most accurate lead times, please contact Type A Machines directly at

Technical Specifications

Type A Machines stands behind our claims of print resolution, build volume, and all other technical specifications published by Type A Machines. Please note that these have not been rated as of yet by an independent authority. Many of our specs were collected by Andrew, as accurately as he could with the tools available to him. He is pretty accurate, but we cannot guarantee our specifications at this time. If your machine does not meet the specifications set out by us, please contact us for customer support.
