Also known as additive manufacturing, 3D printing is the process of printing, layer by layer, any three-dimensional object from a digital file. Current technology allows about 250 different materials to be printed into an infinite number of shapes and objects.
Additive manufacturing is revolutionary in its contrast to traditional manufacturing, which focuses on removing material until you’ve achieved your desired shape or injecting material into a mold. These are expensive processes that sometimes involve materials that are environmentally harmful.
3D printing gives small businesses the ability to do rapid prototyping and create completely custom products on demand for their customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing.
Logro Farms is an award winning sustainable farm in Austin that produces hydroponic herbs, gourmet mushrooms, and a collection of home gardening kits. Since launching with Kickstarter in 2013, Logro has grown into a thriving business and has become an important member of the sustainable farming community.
The company utilizes the latest advancements in botany, mycology and systems biology to grow organic produce and create extremely low-waste food products. Logro strongly believes in a style of full-cycle farming that has a positive impact on the environment and uses recycled materials as much as possible.

Risks and challenges
For the past 6 months, we've been testing different 3D printers, materials and designs to perfect the process of making 3D Growers. We have learned a ton about how to successfully print and produce high quality planters that exceed expectations. We've also built enough time into our production schedule to guarantee a timely delivery of all backer rewards.
We have experience running a successful Kickstarter campaign and we understand how to fulfill all backer rewards while providing excellent customer service. We know exactly how to produce 3D Growers and we already have our material suppliers ready to ship. Our backers can rest assured that we will deliver on our promises and commitments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
