We couldn't meme it if it wasn't true... AstroPrint fans are indeed pretty classy. :-)
If you have friends that are also classy, please tell them about AstroPrint! Thanks!
Stretch Goals are Here! Yay!
We ran through all the data from the survey (over 80 respondents!) and it is very clear what features the AstroPrint community wants next. BTW, there were a lot of write-in feature requests that do not need to be stretch goals because we are already building them into AstroPrint.
If you haven't already, check out the development timeline at the bottom of the campaign page. Some features that will be in AstroPrint by default are: camera support (w/ timelapse), print and filament statistics, API access for developers, and customizable slic3r settings.
In regards to stretch goals:
- $25k - Feature Addition - File Sharing! This allows AstroPrint users to select designs to share with friends, family, or even strangers (i.e. the public.) Other people can print your designs on their printers, if you so desire...
- $35k - Feature Addition - CAD Plugins! AstroPrint will be integrated with two of the most popular free CAD programs in the universe: Blender and Sketchup. AstroPrint users will be able to import and print straight from these awesome CAD programs.
- $45k - It's a secret! - We have a GREAT one planned for this level. The survey was very clear that a lot of people want this... But we'll keep it a secret just a little bit longer.
As always, thank you so much for your support in making 3D printing even more awesome than it already is!
