Why do we believe in Snapmaker?
Our team had the pleasure of meeting representatives from Snapmaker in person and testing their product, and the first thing that really struck us was that Snapmaker is obsessed with quality. In talking to the founders we learned that building their brand and reputation is the most important thing to them. It really seems that they paid close attention to detail, not overlooking anything regarding the product, or the company’s operation.
From our experience, we know there are three things that matter when it comes to successful delivery of a 3D printer following a pre-order campaign: reasonable margins, ability to scale production processes, and having a thoroughly vetted prototype. Snapmaker has all three of these things, which makes them Fit For Launch!
Why should you pre-order now?
Their 3D printer was one of the most highly crowdfunding campaigns for a 3D printer of all time, and for a good reason. But all this success means working through unexpected scale up needs and expanded production planning - and that has now been solved. There is a much shorter wait to receive the product, much more certainty about the delivery timeline and less risk overall. They did all the work - creating a fantastic brand, a great product, successfully finished the software and firmware, and delivered over 200 units already.
In modern times, it’s possible for a creator to launch a product on a popular crowdfunding site only to underestimate their project, be overwhelmed by challenges, and to throw in the towel. Since there is no legal recourse or consequences, they can also shift funds from product delivery to instead focusing on paying their liabilities.
ALL FitForLaunch creators have to sign a Personal Guarantee to be listed on our platform.
Because they believe in themselves and their product so much we’ve gotten this assurance and commitment from the Snapmaker creators. This doesn’t mean the creator or platform can absolutely guarantee delivery, but it means they’ll try their hardest, and use everything in their personal power to try and make this project succeed.
