Perfect for veterinary medicine
I raise hampsters for a living and being the horny bastards they are I have to deal with their STDs on a regular basis. Using topical medicines is hard because their private parts are so sensitive and they'll claw and bite you so much so getting the exact right amount applied to their willies/coochies is an absolute must. I'm happy to say that using the I-Extruder I can handle these buggers with ease now. I don't have to look for hamster-sized condoms anymore.
It is the best tool I have been waiting for
I am very happy to use I-Extruder with my electrical hobby life. Usability of I-Extruder is best than the other competing products.

Most strong point is that possible to supply small amount of solder onto small PAD. Furthermore、it is Small, light, stable, quiet, multi function, Reasonable price.

Thank you Artline team.
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.
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.
Very nicely done!
I've used an EFD dispenser for a long time, but it requires I keep a bottle of Argon around to drive it (no clean shop air in my lab). The argon is not expensive, but it is inconvienent, and if I want to move the EFD around, it's bulky, and has 3 cables plus the air line.

The i-Extruder, on the other hand, is highly portable (I use a USB battery pack sometimes), just as accurate and repeatable as the EFD, and LOT easier to use, and no 3000 PSI pony bottle of Argon to lug around.

This is truly a great product. Very well made, and the kind of project that other Kickstarter entries should use as a reference.
I love things that are well made
I-Extruder dispenser is very well engineered and the build quality is simply amazing.
it's a real time-saver for PCB prototyping. The plastic tapered tips that comes with it , are easy to use for solder paste dispensing. I've already used i-extruder for 0805 and 0603 components with perfect results.
Very good product, i highly recommend it !

The most useful tool for soldering
I-Extruder is the most useful tool for soldering. It's confortable to hold in the hand and dispenses solder easily. The best features are the XYZ stand and the foot pedal which free your hands to hold the board and the components. I definitely recommend it for your hobby projects.

What can i say, this tool beats my expectations. I have been using it for dispensing glue for fabricating acylic products, and it has completly revolutionalised the gluing process, no more pools of glue that suddenly happen when giving to much pressure to the syringe, which ruin the athetics of the finished product. No more reject products!!, YET :)
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!
Fantastic product !
This is absolutely fantastic product ! I really love it. I've backed Kickstarter project and now I have ordered two more I-Extruders for my work lab.
Big thanks to I-Extruder team for such a great job and fantastic support.
