The H-1 is the most affordable entry-level open source 3D printer available. It is also the FIRST machine to use injection molded parts. Our H-1 machine is based on a famous open source RepRap machine
named Huxley. We support and appreciate the open source design shared by RepRap Jean-Marc and
Adrian Bowyer. Our campaign motto is "Standing on the
shoulder of giants".
Our machine is called the H-1 because it isn't a replica. The H-1 plastic parts are all redesigned for plastic injection molding. We found it difficult to source some metric parts in the United States so we designed the H-1 in inch units. To further reduce cost, we injection molded plastic roller bearings instead of buying metal bearings.
We are using parallel port based electronics compatible with more conventional CNC software like Mach3 or EMC2. So if you want to use the reprap created software, get the $100 parts kit and use any of the great reprap created electronics platforms, but if you're a CNCer like us then get the full kit and print using your favorite CNC software.
With our manufacturing
tools and know-how, we are able to provide you with the lowest entry
cost available for a new 3D printer. Because we have the
ability to make our own injection mold tooling, and injection on our own equipment, we are able cut the cost.
SeeMeCNC is the name brand created by Steve Wygant. SeeMeCNC products are manufactured by PartDaddy.com. While some motors and electronics come from our friends overseas, the H-1 parts and kits are made by us right here in the U.S.A.
The H-1 will bring the "personal manufacturing" experience to many more people than ever before.
What We Need & What You Get
Your contribution to our campaign gets you a perk! PartDaddy (aka Steve) has been in business since 1996. This Indiegogo campaign is going give us the boost needed to finish up in time for the holidays.
We're completing the H-1 in time to ship by mid December, 2011. Regardless of our goal, we'll have the parts perks ready for the holiday season. The low campaign goal is basically just the cost of materials for a few of the remaining injection molds we're working on right now.
On Fridays, during this campaign only, we welcome campaign contributors to the PartDaddy.com shop for a short tour. A contributor must email us before coming and have made a contribution.
Shipping Your Perk
All parts perks will ship by mid December even if you're
contributing to a perk with electronics. Perks that include motors or
electronics may ship later because they are being imported and might not arrive before the end of the year. Regardless, everyone will be shipped their parts perk.
- Perks ship via United States Postal Service.
- Shipping included for contributors within the 48 states.
- Contributors outside the 48 states will have an extra shipping cost added. We will send a PayPal notification for this additional amount. This additional shipping will be only actual cost to ship.
