The realm of “crowd-funding your dreams” is on the rise with the popularity of website such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Entrepreneurs can create fundraising campaigns to bring to fruition any type of service or product with a short web video and an idea.
This series of posts will feature campaigns that have used Trotec lasers in some incredibly successful projects.
Setting up a crowd-funding campaign is a lot of work. Not only do you have a come up with an idea that the general public will love enough to pledge money to, a person needs to make sure that the campaign website has a clear message and a video detailing the project.
But all the work will pay off! Trotec has several established customers who funded their laser through Kickstarter... Many of which made more than enough money to cover their initial start-up costs.
John Warren recently started a Kickstarter campaign that will help fund a Trotec laser to create custom dice. ”On April 8th, I launched a Kickstarter project to make customized dice available to the masses.” states John. “I show several examples on our Kickstarter page of dice that I've designed - but the more exciting part of the project is how it puts custom dice within the reach of the average gamer.”
John’s research solidified his thought that a laser will be the best way of achieving the detail that he needed on the dice in the fastest time. When he stopped by the Trotec booth at a recent trade show and saw a Trotec laser in action, he was hooked.
“By combining the speed and precision of a Trotec laser with my custom software to process the designs and a special rig built specifically to help quickly rotate entire batches of dice at the same time, I believe we can significantly reduce the amount of time needed to create these custom dice. Less time spent in the manufacturing process means we can bring these dice into a price range that makes sense.”
