THANK YOU EVERYONE!
A complete and absolutely heartfelt thank you to everyone, from the RotoMAAK Team. Everyone who backed the project in pledges, Internet posts and shares, the articles writers and bloggers, and telling a friend...deserves our deepest thank you.
Even though we are not officially funded, as the RotoMAAK Kickstarter does not end until Fri, Apr 18 2014 7:57 PM EDT, we are already hard at work creating video tutorials, developing a support structure, designing an e-commerce and support website, and preparing for production and shipping.
We also want to give the backers more for their pledges. We are pleased to announce that we will be adding Stretch Goals tomorrow 3-26-14. We are finalizing the levels, but the current 2 stretch goals are as follows:
1. FIRST STRETCH GOAL (Amount to be announced on 3-26-14):
A Solderless RotoMAAK!
Currently there are a total of six solder joints. Two for the power plug, two for the speed control, and two on the motor. The others are screw terminals. We are currently discussing a stretch goal that would have allow us to ship a solderless RotoMAAK that would just have "quick connect" plugs for the backers. This would apply to every RotoMAAK Pledge level that has "hardware" in it.
2. SECOND STRETCH GOAL (Amount to be announced on 3-26-14):
Black Melamine RotoMAAK!
All backers for RotoMAAK kits and Laser Cut Parts only kits, will have the Survey Option Choice of either a white or black melamine RotoMAAK
Q & A + SOME SPECS
QUESTION 1: Are there resins, or what ever is used to produce the part, that are food safe. Like a glass reproduced for example.
ANSWER 1: Right now there is not a food safe resin, that has been tested, "liquid" enough
to work in a rotational casting procedure. After research on other resin suppliers sites, we can find the food safe material to make the molds to cast food out of (chocolate bunnies), but no hard resin to make cups etc. that you can eat or drink directly from.
QUESTION 2: Do you have any prototypes / test castings in the height range of 6-8 inches?
ANSWER 2: The Image you see in the picture below
measures 7.5 in. in height. We do not have a final mold volume yet, as we are doing last minute laser cut design file adjustments to maximize the volume the RotoMAAK can take.
