About

This campaign is open for an in house production pre-order of drop-in MiniVan cases (compatible with standard MiniVan cases), 60% cases, and a small run of DM305 mouse units (based around the Logitech/Logicool model G304/G305). SINGLE DONATION, NOT RECURRING.

Through experience with 3D printing, resin casting, and injection molding, I have found that the most efficient way to work in prototyping and small scale runs is to 3D print in house. To continue creating new projects and designs - a 3D printer is a necessity.

Printer choice between the Anycubic Chiron and the Creality3D CR-10 S4 gives a large enough print area to be able to print in single solid pieces (400 x 400 x 450 mm and 400 x 400 x 400 mm respectively). This eliminates the need for several small prints to be assembled into a larger piece which provides greater structural integrity. A test print is available for viewing in posts - hand finished (sanding/filing/masked paint).

Upon goal completion, payout will be initiated from Patreon, processing fees deducted, and funds transferred. After transfer is complete, printer and filament will be ordered (Amazon Prime) and production can begin, with rewards going out as they are printed and finished.

Printer setup time is estimated to be 1-3 days (assembly, calibration, troubleshooting), test printing is estimated to be 1-3 days. Print time has been calculated at 18 hours per print (for fidelity). Mouse assembly please allow an extra day (wiring, QC). Rewards will be shipped in order, the same/next day of completion.

Streams will be available of the printer setup/modification/calibration, print process, and design work. Patron only videos and chats will be posted as work begins.

Supporters interested in learning about 3D are encouraged to ask for feedback, contribute ideas, request reviews, or anything I might be missing. Having a printer will allow potentially testing models or concepts of initial patrons ideas.

ON DECK - DM305-B, 2 piece cases for Planck, 65%s, etc.

Patrons highly encouraged to give input.

Lets make cool things together.

10% of proceeds will go to non-profit (Japan typhoon relief / Australia fire relief for this particular campaign).
