About this project
We are really excited to introduce to you the Curve Runner! It is a low-tech rolling ruler for measuring any line, particularly curves.It is super easy to use and the best part is that it is fast and accurate.Use it for any creative or educational endeavor.
Both rulers have an ergonomic handle with a comfortable place for your finger. The handle is made from 1/8th inch thick acrylic and the wheel with .060 acrylic. The products used to attach the wheel to the handle are a medical rivet and a steel washer.The steel washer keeps the wheel from getting scratched while rotating around the handle. The Curve Runner in inches features an 8 inch circumference wheel with measurements to the 16th of an inch.The Metric Curve Runner has a 20cm circumference wheel with measurements to the millimeter.
We are pleased to announce that after discussion with our manufacturer we are now able to offer the 12 inch and 30 cm version of the Curve Runner.
These options can be used for larger projects where wheel revolutions matter and longer distances are required.
It's because of the success of this campaign that we are able to offer this sooner than anticipated. Thanks!
We are nearly ready for production.The artwork has been finalized and we are ready to move forward with the next steps. Our goal is to be able to complete a minimum order with the plastics people, the medical rivet company and washer company as soon as possible! When we meet our funding goal, we can start the ordering, assembly and packaging processes. By doing this, we should be able to ship the rulers to you at the earliest possible time.
We will be having the Curve Runner manufactured here in the US. This will enable us to have manageable minimums and great customer service. This will include quick turnaround on any improvements that are made and fast delivery of the final product.
We love to ship internationally, however, there are extra steps that your country may require. These extras could be VAT, custom fees etc. that could make your reward more expensive than what is indicated when you make your purchase on the Kickstarter Rewards. Please contact your customs office before you become a backer. What we don’t want for our International backers is to get to the customs office and not be able to accept your reward because the custom/VAT fees were too high or unexpected. We can’t refund your order if you reject your reward because of custom/VAT fees. We appreciate your understanding concerning these limitations.
Risks and challenges
We plan to streamline the production process and enhance our internal quality control of our rulers. Of course, crazy things can come up and we promise to keep everyone updated on the progress and any issues that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
