We are extremely excited with the feedback and emails we have received!!!
In less than 24 hours we received over 150 emails requesting to enter in the pre-order list, some people for basic kit and most for the full kit!! We are very happy with the success!!!
Because of that we decided to start the Indiegogo campaign tomorrow (April 2nd) as pre-order of the kits.
We received many questions and they will be all in our FAQ.
We are planning to have the following perks for our campaign:
Important: All prices below are just for Indiegogo.
E-mail PDF (59 USD):
One PDF document that will be delivered by email with the printer high level design (no measures included in the drawings), pictures, design suggestions, tips, some secrets.
This document brings all information for a hobbyist to design and develop his own printer.
The person should have some strong mechanical and electronic skills to be able to build the machine.
CD with complete design (159 USD - including shipping):
A CD with detailed printer design, including all measures, detailed pictures, BOM, videos how to assemble, manual, one resin formula and tips.
This CD contains all detailed information for a hobbyist to build our printer. The person should have some mechanical and electronic skills to be able to build the machine.
Software + Complete CD (399 USD - including shipping):
The CD above + full license of our software (features of the software will be in the FAQ)
Software price after Indiegogo: (549 USD)
Basic Kit I (Software + Controler board + Complete CD) (599 USD - shipping not included):
All items above + 1 controller board (able to control the entire printer).
(This basic kit does not include motors or linear guides or projector)
Price After Indiegogo: (849 USD)
Basic Kit II (Basic Kit I + few mechanical parts) (1999 USD - shipping not included):
This kit will have the Basic Kit I + the following parts:
1) All necessary motors for the printer
2) The linear actuators
3) Power supply for the controller board and motors
4) Building tray
5) Building head (area that the object is build)
With this kit you will have almost everything you need to speed up the process of building our printer.
(This basic kit does not include projector, machine main structure, as well some mechanical parts)
Price After Indiegogo: (2699 USD)
Full Kit (everything you need + 1KG of resin!!) - (3999 USD - shipping not included):
This kit will include everything, from projector to bolts and nuts. You will need just few hours to assemble and run you new 3D Printer. This kit also comes with 1KG of resin, which is enough to print a lot!!!
Price After Indiegogo: (to be defined)
Unfortunately we will be able to deliver only 250 full kits this year for this Indiegogo campaign, because of production limitation and we will probably just take new orders next year once we deliver all Indiegogo perks.
Additionally the campaign will last just for 2 months and the order will follow the purchase order at Indiegogo.
I am sure you will have great time with this machine as much we have been working on it.
BTW, this is not 1st April joke... :-)
About the Project
I have been dreaming about having a 3D Printer at home for many years, but the ones with good quality are not affordable and the low costs just deliver poor quality. Sounds crazy but I decided to build a high resolution 3D Printer by myself at home (people actually said that I was crazy and this was impossible). The funny thing I never saw this type of machines in real life, and still haven’t seen one besides the one I built.
Now that I succeed building the first prototype, the target is to bring this low cost 3D Printer to every home, so we are developing the first affordable one with high resolution.
I hope you enjoy our blog, follow us and you can have this printer in your home soon.
