About this project

I represent a group of creative individuals that are owners of RepRap 3D printers. Perhaps you've heard of MakerBot? http://reprap.org/ http://makerbot.com/

We are interested in getting some new and cool materials to put into our printers so that we can print out objects of different colors. Makerbots and other 3D printers use a plastic called ABS and it comes in many colors but most people have been using Black and "Natural" up until now because it is the most commonly available. We want to order some ABS plastic in Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow so that we can make more fun and happy objects. The plastic is kind of expensive and it has to be bought in somewhat large minimum quantities.

We want to fund a group purchase of all the colors and then divvy up the colors in portions to our backers so that each person can get a smaller amount of all the colors. We also want to be able to make fun colored objects that we can send to backers.

We want to make some rewards for backers who want us to send them a Rainbow Pack of ABS and maybe other rewards of color-printed objects for other backers.

We are asking for $2000 to buy 180 lbs. of ABS. That would be 30 lbs. each of the six colors we can get: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Black and Natural.
