About this project
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!VIDEO COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello Kickstarter !
This is John and Sam , We are big fans of both Kickstarter and The Rep Rap community
We have designed and built Machines for General Motors , as well Major automotive and furniture suppliers.
We feel with our experience we can assist the Rep Rap community by lowering parts cost and improving strength and stability.
What we’d like to do is create the plastic parts in metal, currently it takes an average of 8 hours for the 3d printer to print the parts for 1 Prusa Mendel printer, with our equipment we can produce enough parts for over 100 machines in the same time frame at a cheaper price, making it more affordable for the homebuilder as well as assisting manufacturers process orders in a more timely manner.
Here is where you can help!
What we need funding for is tooling and raw material cost, since we already have the machinery for the injection process that will be our only need to get started.
Keep checking in with us to see the different trinkets that will be made available to our supporters
We will return in the near future as we are currently working out the bugs for OTHER Rep Rap related issues.
What bearings will we use? the bearings will be LM8UU in cast aluminum blocks.except the bearings will stick out on both ends . and held in with c-clips. and no threaded holes.
We were previously manufacturing product for the furniture industry , and we had to close our doors about two years ago , In order to put our team back to work we need to manufacture more than one part, previously we were manufacturing upto 288 parts at any given time.
Our Kickstarter campaigns are very related on one hand we want to supply parts for the 3D Printers and on the other we want to supply the material used (filament), In order to accomplish our goals of lowering costs to the end user we must have enough funding to do each project .
The only thing you will need to purchase will be the power supply
