As a Product Design Engineer studying Automotive Design, I want to expand my means of design and bring my artistic abilities and CAD capabilities to the market.
As I'm on a student loan going through this crisis, my money is limited, but my ideas extend past the horizon. That is why I'm investing all the money and time I can muster to make my business plan work.
I would like to purchase a Formlabs 3D printer which would allow me to print the car designs I have as well as pre-existing cars. These would then be sold at low prices (due to low printing cost) but still provide me with a small profit which will help contribute towards paying everyday bills. This business could hopefully expand over time until i can afford machinery, tools & materials to make life-size replica / custom cars on donor chassis (as i have experience in this area also). This would then become my primary source of income.
Step one is having clients wanting small model cars, planes, boats etc. being custom made in batches for them to a high standard.
Step two requires a consistent and long lasting line of clients wanting trade which would enable me to expand my base of operations.
Step three involves fewer clients with more specific desires which will lead to truly one off creations of art in motion (fully working / sized one off car designs).
What I am offering in return for the crowd funded support is one-off automotive models designed by me and wanted by you.
