Not really. If you’d point me out to where I can download the STLs to do so, I would. But that’s unfortunately not the case, the part that broke is not suited for 3D printing, it’s a very thin and precise part, that also has to slide in and out other precisely made parts. If it was a part that could be fixed, it would still take quite some time and effort (measure broken part, CAD model part, print, test, modify, print, assemble, etc.).
You and I are probably quite well equipped to fix our own things, but what about the other 80% of the people, what do they do? They’re faced with products planned for obsolescence, unfixable and that have to be replaced every few years. People can hardly do anything about it.
We like to change that, give people a choice, that if they want to, they can get a product that is shipped to them in a package 1000% smaller than if they would get the fully assembled product. A product that they can then make themselves. Fix. Upgrade. Customise.
And yes, I’d like people to buy our kits, so we can develop many more modular products people can print and fix themselves.
Right now we’re just starting out with a very basic product. We’d like that more things are made locally and recycled locally. Who knows what what kind of products we’ll make in a few years? With print+ we’re actually doing this so we’ll gain insights we’d otherwise not have if we’d only think about it and not actually execute the idea. The ultimate goal for print+ is that there’s no need for print+, at least not in its current form. Unfortunately I imagine that’ll be a long time, because it’s a pretty bad situation we’re in.
It’s just my two cents
