About

I'm an IT consultant, who loves staying up to date on the latest technology.

3D printing has always fascinated me, and as printers are becoming more mainstream, there has been a veritable explosion of affordable 3D printer models, which means this exciting industry is now open for everyone to participate in!

I have recently discovered a niche market for rare and impossible to find automobile parts. I have been collecting as many of these hard-to-find parts as I can, and 3D modelling them for future production as 3D printed goods. Most of these parts are plastic, and as they break or wear out faster than the cars they belong to, demand starts increasing.

I'm going to start out with a small, hobby-class printer. the specs for most of these devices more than meet the requirements for nearly-indistinguishable-from-the-originals reproductions.

The money from this Kickstarter will be used as follows:

  • $700-1000 - Purchase of the Printer
  • $100-200   - Purchase of goods to create the rewards
  • $200-300   - Purchase of accessories, supplies, and consumables to start printing my currently modeled parts.

The costs above are high estimates. If I am able to proceed  with these goals at minimal cost, I intend to reinvest the remaining funds into current 3D printing and 3D scanning crowdfunded projects. If you are running a crowdfunding project right now, please let me know! I would love to support you!

Risks and challenges

The only real challenge will be finding a printer that can meet my requirements. Careful research can mitigate this risk to near zero.
I have spent the past year research printers, and talking to contacts I have in the industry of 3D Printing and Modeling.
