Ittyblox is for architecture enthousiast what model trains are for train fanatics and what dinky toys are for car lovers!
After the succesful kickstarter for the Flatiron building, It is time for an entirely new set to add to your miniature city: Amsterdam!
Ittyblox buildings allow you to create your own miniature city. They are produced using a 3D printing service called Shapeways. They print and ship the buildings world wide. The Ittyblox shop on Shapeways (found here) already has a vast collection of miniature buildings.
This Kickstarter project will help making the Ittyblox collection grow, by offering special rewards for early birds. After the Kickstarter ends, the buildings will be available at standard prices in the Ittyblox webshop at Shapeways.
This time this Kickstarter is not about launching a new building, it's an entire Amsterdam set. Off course some famous canal houses are featured, but also a typical 1930's style building and a 17th century tower.
The process of designing these buildings, prototyping and redesigning, taking pictures, promoting the models is very time consuming and therefore expensive. With more resources, these process can be improved: better camera equiment, better photostudio, hire extra modellers, photo editors etc. This way our collection will increase and improve.
Risks and challenges
ttyblox has already proven to be a solid production house and our partner Shapeways is market leader in 3Dprinting and distribution. Because these buildings are very delicate, sometimes they are printed correctly 9 times, but fail the tenth time. A delay in shipment will arise, because often small adjustments have to be made in order to ensure a printability of 100%.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
