Getting ready to launch a lower-cost hassle-free filament crowd-funding campaign. Dreams of bringing down the cost of commercial grade filament for everyone! For updates… http://ic3dprinters.com
So this is going to be something like a huge batch-order you can sign up in advance for?
Anthony, thinking a little bigger…
@Michael_Cao Specifically…? If the goal is just to build a distribution group that buys wholesale to give to individuals, I think that’s just called “retail”.
The idea is really simple. Leveraging our resources, we’re going to obtain a commercial filament production line and make filament exclusively for the 3D printing crowd (including ourselves!). Everyone knows the cost mark-up from pellets to spooled filament is insanely high. This makes sense after understanding all the steps, people and equipment involved in the process. Our objective is to cut out as many of those layers as possible. This is, by no means innovative, but just takes a lot of effort and investment. A secondary goal we have is to hopefully be able to donate or give deep discounts to schools. Hope to get some good support!
