The best tool that I have ever owned.
The best tool for PCB assembly that I have ever owned.
Fully configurable with cool and user friendly menu and it is almost absolutely silent.
And it also work for SMD components placement in pick and place mode!!!
That is a really neat idea to combine two device into a single one.

I do PCB prototyping for living, and my previous pneumatic dispenser (Chinese) , with air compressor, was a real nightmare.

For those who are interested, I strongly recommend you the get "advanced" pack. Pick&Place pen and the foot switch are really good addition to I-Extruder.
Great product!
This dispenser tool is fantastic! The quality of all components, including the optional XYZ stand is very high, the tool is versatile, well manufactured and easy to use. Although it looks pretty bulky on the pictures, it is actually lightweight and well balanced. I can highly recommend this tool.
That's a real "Made In France" quality product

I just received my I-Extruder pack with XYZ aluminum stand yesterday and I was very surprised, since I hadn't expected such a great quality of manufacturing !
That's a real "Made In France" quality, like it used to be many years ago.
Good job guys !

Best SMD tool on my bench.
The prospect of dabbing solder paste onto my boards with a toothpick was too much to bear, so I jumped at this Kickstarter.
Ten minutes playing with it and I was an old hand. Programming this thing is a breeze, and it feels solid in the hand with good ergonomics. I recommend the foot pedal. It allows you to lay down a really precise dab of paste right where you want it.
Solder paste placement is fast! You can do a small board in a few minutes with no mess at all. The pick and place lets you populate your board fast.
There is no downside with this product. It is quiet and feels good in the hand. There is no compressor noise since it uses a stepper motor for the drive.
This is the handiest SMD tool on my bench. If you are making your own boards then this is the must-have for your workplace, at home or on the job. Period.
Super Produkt !!!
Ein sehr gutes Produkt.
Einfach zu handhaben, präzise, vielseitig.
Die exakte Einstellung der Dosierung perfekt.
Auch die Möglichkeit schnell und unkompliziert die zu dosiernden Medien durch Tausch der Behälter zu wechseln ist genial.
Jederzeit würde ich dieses Produkt weiterepfehlen. :)
Well made...
I am very impressed with the quality of manufacture. Precision dies, good plastic selection, and quality machined parts. I expect to be using this very useful tool for many years. The only criticism is the size of the display and menu buttons. Ok for young guys with sharp eyes and skinny fingers but not for old workshop hacks with stubby digits.
i-Extruder is wonderful !
I backed the i-Extruder twice, once for the campaign that didn't make the goal, the second time for the one that DID make the goal. Since then, my i-Extruder has been sitting and waiting patiently for my projects to require it. That day was today.

I switched the type of flux I've been using (MG Chemicals liquid rosin flux) for Amtech NC-559-V2-TF Tacky Flux, recommended by Louis Rossmann in NYC, who uses it for board-level repairs on Apple motherboards. I love the stuff, but I got the big 30cc syringe, and it was just really unwieldy to use. So I pulled out the i-Extruder, filled a 10cc syringe and hooked everything up. It works perfectly, delivering just enough flux, then pulling back to keep more from oozing out. And since I do plan on getting into SMD components soon, it'll come in handy for solder paste application, too! (I have both hot air rework station AND a ReflowR programmable reflow plate, but haven't done enough SMD to really take advantage of them yet. But soon...)

This device is a real godsend, especially because I have difficulty with my hands due to a spinal injury. Squeezing the plunger on a syringe is possible, but painful, so this really helps me with my electronics work!

Thank you, and I hope you're having a lot of success! I just sang the praises of the i-Extruder to a worldwide mailing list of ham radio homebuilders and modders, so we'll see if they think so too and order some!
Good Good Good!!!
Beautiful product, sophisticated design, I recommend it for those who like me will use it for work.
Perfect Product
I really love this new tool.
Got my I-Extruder via Kickstarter.
Thank you very much, I-Extruder team.
Well made product that fills an old gap in the maker / hobby market
Received the i-Extruder pack last week. It was well packed with some extras already included in the base package (pick and place piston and cups). The tool was also smaller than expected. This is good news, because it makes it better suited to use under a microscope. First setup was easy, but it takes some time to find the optimal settings for the material used. It's a good idea to use the paste sold (for a reasonable price) by the designers because setup other solder paste was a bit of a hit and miss. Also the offered paste comes pre-filled in a compatible dispenser which also saves the filling chore. After finding the optimal settings the operation is pretty straight forward, altough people with large(r) hand or fingers would benefit from getting a foot pedal as the dispensing buttons are close together. All in all a good product for an affordable price that smartly fills a gap in the hobby market.
