HCDC Client GeckoTek launched its second Kickstarter campaign last Friday to crowdfund dollars to launch its new product EZ Stick.
During the company’s first campaign (held in 2014), GeckoTek received $60,000 in crowdfunding dollars that was used to set up operations and produce its first product, the GeckoTek3D Printer Build Plate. Sales of the first product have steadily increased, but requests and suggestions from end-users have now resulted in the development of a new, lower-cost Build Surface that works with any 3D printer.
GeckoTek’s new product, EZ Stick Build Surface, improves on the first product in that it can be cut with scissors to fit any 3D printer on the market, and has a more durable coating allowing up to 200 uses before a replacement needs ordered.
“We received an amazing response to our original Build Plates, but there are so many different 3D printers out there that we couldn’t make a different size to fit each one,” says GeckoTek CEO Brad Ruff. “To solve this problem, EZ Stick is made from a durable high-temperature polymer film that you can easily trim with scissors to fit your build platform.”
GeckoTek’s funding goal is $20,000. Early bird pre-orders start at $15. The Kickstart campaign can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/p
