Can I use the LUCY if I wear glasses?

Yes, you can use the LUCY if you wear glasses, but it will not work well if you have to wear trifocals or progressive lenses. Basically a LUCY enables you to see two things at the same time laid over either. So you see your paper and the subject at the same time. So if you have difficultly seeing near and far objects without trifocals, then when the two images are transposed over each other you will only be able to see either one or the other clearly. Now this mostly applies if you’re drawing something far away. Lets say you have the LUCY set 20” above the paper and you’re drawing a still life 20” away, then you shouldn't have the same problem. Normal glasses won't be a problem, but if you have trifocals then you will have difficulty using your LUCY for draw distant scenes like landscapes. But you should be able to draw close still lifes, portraits, or photos with the Photo Projector. Last updated: Tue, Mar 1 2016 2:31 pm EST

Does it matter if you are right or left handed?

No it does not matter because the manual shows you how it can easily changes the LUCY back and forth from right-handed to left-handed. So if you have more than one person using it; then you can change back and forth from the right-handed setup to the left-handed setup. Last updated: Tue, Mar 1 2016 8:40 am EST

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://the-lucy-drawing-tool-most-versatile-camera-lucida.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
