We want the people who share in using and developing our machines to benefit from our profits. This can happen by our own “Crowd Sourcing” option – offering shares in our company to those who positively input to it.
Why would we want to give 10% away to Kickstarter? (Kickstarter applies a 5% fee to the funds collected, in addition to which payment processing fees of around 3-5% are applied)
If we pay out this extra cost on the devlopment of our printers, we will then need to charge more when we are selling our printers in order to recoup these charges. So essentially you, our customer, loose out and we move further from our goal of making 3D printing accessible to all.
