What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Welcome to Lowpolysaurus park. Kid friendly, whimsical, low-poly dinosaur models for your 3D printer. Designed to print without supports and print with low or no infill. Perfect as a test print or just for fun with gentle angles to minimize sharp edges so they're suitable for all ages. 

Help build the whole set and print your own dinosaur park!

The Plan

How many 3D models will be included in this kickstarter? It depends on how much it raises.

There are two tiers of rewards that will grow as the campaign does. The Triassic tier gets a limited set of 3D models of dinosaurs and accessories, as voted on by the community. The Jurassic tier receives every dinosaur and accessories models created in this kickstarter.

The success of this campaign will determine how many dinosaurs will be modeled. The more it raises, the larger the rewards will be. For your support you will not only receive the 3D dinosaur models developed in this campaign, but you will have a vote in what the next dinosaur will be as the campaign progresses.

Meet the Dinos

As the campaign raises more, there will be more dinos added to the park. So far there there is already:

  • Egg
  • Tyrannosaurs Rex
  • Triceratops
  • Dipolaucus/Brontosaurs
  • Stegasaurus
  • Feathered raptor / velocaraptor
  • Ankylosaur
  • Spinosaur
  • Megalodon
  • Pterodactyl
  • Stygimoloch
  • Archelon
  • Elaphrosaurus
  • Woolly Mastodon
  • Saber Tooth Tiger
  • Trees

...and, many more.

The Cause

This project is brought to you by the 3D Printing Professor and combines my passion for 3D design, drive for education, and excitement when interacting with my audience.

My YouTube channel is in need of a major infusion to stay up-to-date, which is what this kickstarter is raising funds for. Funds raised in this campaign will go towards:

  • Upgraded AV equipment
  • Better lighting in current recording area
  • Upgrade to current recording area
  • Rebuilding recording area into a high tech mini recording studio
  • Taking it off the grid with solar power
  • Aperture panels for instant reconfiguration
  • Disco ball
  • etc

To what degree these upgrades will be acted upon will depend on what this campaign raises. So whether you just like awesome 3D models or want to support what I do on YouTube, your contribution to this kickstarter will be greatly appreciated.

Risks and challenges

This kickstarter will deliver digital files created during the run of the kickstarter. There will be minimal physical rewards to insure delivery.
