FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 24, 2014 - PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- The idea for creating a project like Maker Kase was inspired by necessity, like so many other projects on Kick Starter. The task was to solve a problem we were having in our office on a daily basis. Our company has been in the retail/production industry for over a decade. During this time we have gone from model making to the latest in desktop CNC and 3d printing. What used to take us a year to design, prototype, and produce for our retail clients is now usually done in under six months. To accomplish this we relied a lot on 3d printing and the concept of rapid prototyping. From our original Cupcake, to an 8′x8′ PrintrBot all the way to our current Afinia machines, we embraced 3d printing. Yet a lot of times we were left with bad prints due to temperature variances, people bumping into the printer accidentally, or vibration loosening some of the kit pieces during high speed printing.

It was then that we decided to use our resources and create our own cabinets that could sit on our desks and protect our equipment from all of the variables that left us frustrated. We knew from the beginning we wanted a cabinet that was similar in durability and structure to professional grade equipment.. After a few weeks of tinkering in Solidworks, we had a design we really liked and was big enough for all current and foreseen machines.

We realized quickly from feedback that not everyone wanted or could afford the stainless steel finish we wanted for our office. While we loved the industrial look of stainless steel, it is a more expensive metal to use in production so we had another meeting with our production partner. We went over the materials available and we decided that a mild steel, currently used in Desk Top Tower PCs was the right choice for a less expensive case. We also liked the idea we could powder coat the mild steel and decided to use a black and white finish the factory currently uses. Black for PC users and white for Apple users.

Back this project on Kickstarter.
