FABmobs designs and builds 3d-printing platforms — printers, software, network — for companies whose production and distribution depends on mobility and locational services.
We’ve decided on a two-step strategy for the FABMOBs|ATMOStag development:
- we need to put the FABMOBs platform to the test by capturing, generating and printing a lot of ATMOStag tiles; that’s the goal of this Kickstarter campaign. printing and diffusing a large number of tiles in a short amount of time. To do this, we need both the reason and the resources to initiate this production run.
- Once achieved, we will continue its development by building out the FABMOBs platform so that other artists, makers, activists and 3d printer owners can build projects upon it.
Our ultimate goal is to develop FABMOBs into both a robust platform and a sustainable business that builds innovative design solutions and projects in the 3d printing space. This Kickstarter campaign is the cornerstone of that development process. It will serve to directly finance a massive production run to test the sensors, printers, software and networks comprising the FABMOBs platform as it is currently in place. It will also help us validate the FABMOBs approach to the question of developing content for the creative use 3d printers. This validation can only come from Kickstarter and its unique combination of social network and financial engagement expressed in the gestures of the Kickstarter community.
