Recently we have added a new button “make a donation”. And the light goal is 100 thousand for 3D-printer. Everyone interested in it can invest some money for the project support.
Why so much money is needed?
92 thousand for 3D-printer MakerBot 2.
8 thousand for 10 kg of high-quality organic produced in Ukraine plastic.
Why exactly this printer is wanted?
It can be imagined that the most expensive printer was taken at random for this campaign. And that it is possible to buy a set for printer assemblage at the Chinese for 100 dollars. But things aren’t so simple. We have self-made Prusa printer. We have printed the major part of our developments in rather low quality with its help and it has literally burnt while working. Poor fellow just could not work all day round. Then we began ordering printing at specialized offices.
Arithmetic is easy:
Printing costs in average 7 UAH per gram of plastic.
We can print just 20 sets (toy + cubes) for 100 thousand.
Printing these details with our own 3D-printer will be available at the prime cost of plastic (electric power isn’t under attention now). That is about 500 UAH per that set. Yes, we have to add the cost of printer, but the more stuff is printed, the faster it is refunded.
Who needs this?
The target group of these developments is blind or partially sighted children aged from 2 to 6. According to unofficial statistics there are from 2.3 to 4.2 thousand them in Ukraine. At least one and a half thousand sets are needed to give each second child the possibility to read. And with the help of 3D-printer we can do that.
Why exactly 3D-printing?
We have considered different manufacturing variants from laser cutting (difficulties at assemblage, more painting layers) to plastic casting (high-cost form).
It was found out that 1000 items isn’t even a small series for a factory. The cost of toys becomes several times as high. A few people can afford this purchase and our main goal is to make development affordable.
