3Dazer is the first app-driven, smart laser measuring device on the market with the ability to easily measure and keep your project data well organized and stored on your iPhone to access anytime, anywhere. The sharing feature makes collaboration with other team members more efficient allowing the job to go smoother.
Ease and flexibility - Switching easily between the attached mode and remote mode provide the flexibility to fit any measuring situation.
Smart - being compatible with the iPhone enables the 3Dazer to use the iPhone's advanced embedded sensors thereby making it more powerful.
All-in-one data storage - the measurements are saved in a well-organized system on the user's iPhone. The label function enables the user to take photos and mark up the images with measurement lines, text notes or voice memos. Access the information from anywhere.
One-click sharing - The user's data can be uploaded to a secure cloud account to be easily shared with other team members. The recipients can view it on any device just as they view shared contents via Dropbox or Google Drive.
Sleek and compact - The 3Dazer is small and lightweight making it convenient to have with you at all times. It comes with a soft, drawstring pouch so you can keep it in your purse or pocket. The attractive design makes it a fitting accessory to the iPhone.
The idea of building an app-based measuring tool started in 2015, and it has taken a lot of trial and effort for us to carry the initial concept of the first 3Dazer prototype model with small-scale production to today's Kickstarter campaign. A lot of excitement and anxiety accompanied us along our journey but our persistence has paid off. We hope to keep pushing 3Dazer® forward, making it an even more versatile tool for creative minds.
Nearly 2 years ago, Laurel at Sunset launched its site as a community for interior designers by combining resources of merchandise and interior design services. After working with talented and creative designers, we became aware of the time-consuming task of measuring—the very important first step in any design project.
Traditionally a tape measurer had been the most common measuring tool used and each measurement must be precisely recorded and filed appropriately. To add to the inefficiency, the files could very well be back at the office or misplaced when the designer needed them for reference while out in the field.
Was there a solution to help designers work more efficiently? Our research found that more than 60% of designers use an iPhone extensively. Naturally, we thought why not invent an app and device that works with an iPhone to become a smart measuring tool? Thus, the 3Dazer® was born.
This invention could replace other laser measuring devices that do not work with an iPhone and become not only a useful laser measuring tool but also provide an easy way to manage the data, tag a space, make notes or voice memos and share the information with others.
The device itself is lightweight and takes up very little space to carry with you anywhere you go. The 3Dazer® has been well-received by our design community and featured in interior design publications. It is user-friendly and helps designers work more efficiently and effectively.
The first release of 3Dazers was in February 2017. About 80 units were sent out and tested by designers. Great responses followed and interior designers’ clients got interested and asked if they could use the device for their own purposes. 3Dazer was created for professional use only at that time. Therefore, the LAS team decided to develop a new version for non-professional use.
Currently, we are working on an updated version to enhance the users' experience and optimize the manufacturing process in order to be more cost-effective. This would enable us to be more price-competitive with even higher quality. With the great excitement and enthusiasm we have received, we are seeking to raise $30K to bring this project alive on Kickstarter. You now have a chance to be part of this new and exciting technology.
Risks and challenges
Some of the parts are ordered from third-party suppliers, therefore, we are not in full control of their production timeframe. This might potentially delay the overall delivery time though we work closely with our partners and do our best to deliver our products on time.
We are constantly working on improving the 3Dazer® software, and some technical issues might naturally occur. We request your instant feedback so we can work on making our gadget even better.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
