Kickstarter the 3D Printing Industry

kickstarter-logo-light

If you haven’t heard about KickStarter.com yet, you probably will soon.  Kickstarter is a “crowd sourcing” website that lets individuals fund projects from films to albums to electronic devices in exchange for rewards graduating based upon the level of funding.  Kickstarter has funded 6 films nominated for Oscars (including one winner) and many electronic devices.  I personally have been part of a film and an album.  I’m currently funding another great film and for $75 you too can achieve your dream of being listed on IMDB.com.

3D printing and scanning have also taken advantage of Kickstarter.  Here are a couple of current opportunities on the site:

RigidBot 3D Printer

Desktop 3D Scanner

3Doodler 3D Pen (think hot glue gun meets cake decorator)

And one on a competitor Indiegogo:

Photon 3D Scanner

Checkout the site and have fun looking at all the opportunities 3D or otherwise.
