| Kickstarter: Laser enhancement|
Release status: experimental [box doku]
|Description||Kickstarter for Mumaland's war chest|
We want to raise money, but we also want to advertise our space, maybe get new members, or a fan club online
We'll present the space, some (willing) members, the laser cutter and what we want to do with it. The video should focus on how much fun we have here, how awesome our laser cutter is and how much more awesome it will be with the backers help.
Any creative, crazy and/or funny ideas for the video are more than welcome!
explaining the costs
Why do we spend how much on what? 10 % overhead for club mate and chips, since people need to live to work ;)
Raise money for different enhancements for the recently build laser cutter.
Motorize the Z-Axis
To cut or engrave objects of different sizes, the cutting surface has to be movable on the Z-axis. With 300€ we can motorize it.
We start with a small goal to get the campaign rolling. There is nothing more frustrating than a campaign with a big goal missed by a little. Stretch goals will keep people engaged
Stretch goal 1
Replacement laser source
Sooner or later the Laser will need a replacement.
Stretch goal 2
If backers add some money to stretch goal 1, we can buy a laser with more cutting power. With a little research on lasers this goal is incremental, since we can always buy a stronger laser with more €.
Stretch goal 3
To keep the laser in focus even if the cutting a motorized Z-axis on the laser focus with a range finder would be nice
Stretch goal 4
more laser safety googles
Stretch goal 5
Nice computer to operate the laser cutter, with nice features to make designs.
Any money in-between
The money in-between goals will be spend on cutting material like wood, plexiglas etc.
Obviously something laser cut, but what else could we offer?
