About this project
Funds will be used for daily operations, but the primary use of funds will be to purchase long runs of display ads in industry magazines. Our ads will target auto repair shops, dentists, light manufacturing, and other businesses which use small parts and work under time pressure.
Print-a-part 3d strives for B-corporation status, and profits will be split between investors and charitable donations to assist develop geo-engineering drought mitigation projects like the INDRA-RAIN.com project.
Risks and challenges
Let me tell you a story! One of my first jobs out of grad school, was selling elevators to rich people in Beverly Hills CA. These people had beautiful mansions with marble swimming pools, the works. What struck me was that few of these people were movie stars, or captains of industry. They had made their money from the dullest of businesses, parking lots, concrete, roofing materials.
That's what we are doing, and we will have a lot of competition. Our primary challenge is in stocking our cyber-shelves and reacting to competitive challenges. We must also fight the trend which de-values the work of 3d designers by giving their work away for free.
We are concentrating on building the dull everyday 3d printing market, and becoming one of its true pioneers...join us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
