ONO launched on Kickstarter on March 21, 2016 under the name “OLO.”
The $80,000 goal was reached after only 33 minutes, and broke $1 million after just 5 days. The campaign closed on April 20, 2016 with a total funding of over $2.3 million, and 16,180 backers. ONO broke the record for most preordered 3D printers in Kickstarter history with a total of 16,329 printers ordered.
After the successful campaign, ONO opened up the possibility of buying addons through BackerKit. The result was an additional $400,000 pledged for extra resins and printers. ONO 3D continued to test and refine the printer over the following months, leading to the preparation of shipment of the Kickstarter orders in October.
