About


Facto: Making Makers.

Facto seeks to put a 3D printer into every home and show the world that everyone has a use for them. Imagine a catalog of tools, toys, gifts, learning implements, jewelry, home and holiday decor; every model both reliable and optimized for 3D printing. Now imagine it all it the palm of your hand; introducing the Facto app for iOS. Here you'll be able to search for spooky Halloween decorations, a unique table centerpiece, wall art and so much more. How about that missing socket wrench bit? We've got you covered. Gift ideas for Christmas and Hanukkah? You're set!

Original miniatures for tabletop games are just a tap away from challenging your players!
Original miniatures for tabletop games are just a tap away from challenging your players!

This whole universe of creativity and utility is available either through individual purchase of the models, most for less than a dollar, or through a monthly subscription starting at $5 USD which provides you with a limited but generous amount of credits to print to your heart's desire! After purchasing or spending credits on a model you can print it as many times as you like, even if you stop subscribing. Facto also has a built-in slicing software that allows you to prepare the model for printing completely on your iPhone or iPad. Gone are the days of operating your printer on your computer, now you can do it anywhere! The app also offers an augmented reality mode to see what that sconce might look like on the wall or how that ornament looks on your Christmas tree; no more guessing!

We at Facto have some big ideas, eventually seeking to become your one-stop-shop for printers, filament, and models. The success of this campaign determines just how many of our ideas we can implement. Help us make the world a more creative place. Help us make makers.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge with Facto will be breaking down the stigma that 3D printing is a complicated or expensive process. Our marketing will be focused greatly on convincing people that its a totally approachable process and everyone has a way it can improve their home.
We will also need to gather a more diverse team of professionals to broaden the scope of Facto's abilities and offerings. It also takes a considerable amount of time to model and test all of the files to build up a marketplace, so we will create a contractor program to outsource the bulk of print testing and diversify the types of printers being tested with.

Something else

PLA plastic filament (Polylactic Acid), is one of the primary materials used for 3D printing. It is biodegradable and made from corn, making it guilt free to toss the plastic scraps in the trash! Our models are optimized to have the least amount of waste plastic as well.
