Please post your comment below or contact us if we’ve missed any 3D printing-related crowdfunding campaign. We will update our table accordingly.


Successful Crowdfunding Campaigns for 3D Design Projects

We are pleased to witness the success stories of 3D design projects on fundraising platforms. It shouldn’t be surprising as Kickstarter and Indiegogo’s original purpose was to accommodate all sorts of creators. Recent hefty collections ($ millions) by 3D printer manufacturers dwarfed 3D design projects, and we are now happy to see such projects like Starship IV Chimera by 2nd Dynasty and The Lost Dragons by Danny Herrero getting well funded. Moreover, other platforms like MyMiniFactory keep endorsing them. As 3D design for 3D printing campaigns is a bit harder to find we remind you to contact us if you have such project going, so we could add it to our table for extra publicity.

Crowdfunding Campaigns in 3D Printing

There are a few platforms that help crowdfunding to run smoothly. Casual internet surfers may have already heard about Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Those are well promoted and popular websites where most of the campaigns are hosted. These particular platforms helped to start many 3D printing related projects in the past: from a bed adhesive glue to an all-in-one robotic arm.


Kickstarter 3D Printer and 3D Printing Related Crowdfunding Campaigns

You may have heard about such brands like Form 1, Tiko, Snapmaker, ONO – not all ended up well, but their campaigns were backed with the record amounts of cash. As the time between being funded and mass production may be long, we are still waiting to see some of them reaching their backers.

Tips & Tricks

– Campaigners sometimes use several fundraising platforms to accumulate money for their projects. It may be successful on one and not on the other.
– Before taking part in any campaign as a backer, make sure to read Ts&Cs as not always the “all-or-nothing” rule works if the campaign fails to achieve the goal. “All-or-nothing” is a Kickstarter’s rule when no backer gets charged unless funds reach the goal.
– Backers receive a unique experience as being the first to witness creative work or a new product in development from the very beginning. There are also some extra bonuses and rewards for early birds.

There are two other fundraising platforms that are similar to the mentioned above but that are not quite the same – GoFundMe and Patreon. Both of these platforms are for personal use. There, backers support individuals, and not projects or products.
