Deezmaker was a Kickstarter success story from its beginnings. A 2012 campaign for the first printer (the Bukobot) launched the company, raising roughly four times the minimum requested amount. A subsequent Kickstarter campaign in summer 2013 for the new, portable Bukito printer raised 2.5 times its requested goal.

Currently, Deezmaker is getting ready to fulfill its Bukito Kickstarter orders and ongoing Bukobot orders, laying out plans for more courses, and developing great collaborations.
