Wanhao Smart Pad : Découvrez l'avenir de l'impression 3D à travers notre campagne Kickstarter

Wanhao Smart Pad: Discover the future of 3D printing through our Kickstarter campaign


1. What is the Wanhao Smart Pad?

The Wanhao Smart Pad is an innovative product that represents a significant evolution in the field of 3D printing. It is an open source electronic device, designed to improve and optimize the user experience of 3D printers.

Based on Klipper firmware, the Wanhao Smart Pad stands out for its ability to make 3D printers more efficient and easier to use. The Klipper firmware, at the heart of this product, is recognized for its ability to improve the printing speed and precision of 3D printers by offloading the calculation of the kinematics to an external computer.

The Wanhao Smart Pad is equipped with an intuitive touchscreen, allowing users to easily control their 3D printers. It also offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features that help simplify the 3D printing process, including print job management, real-time monitoring and system configuration.

The product is completely open source, meaning its code and design are freely available to anyone. This encourages transparency, collaboration and innovation, allowing the user community to make improvements and modifications to tailor the product to their specific needs.

The Wanhao Smart Pad is more than just a 3D printing accessory, it is a true revolution that transforms the user experience, promotes innovation and opens the way to new possibilities in the field of 3D printing.


2. Why did we decide to launch this project on Kickstarter

Kickstarter provides a unique platform that allows us to share our vision with a global community of technology and innovation enthusiasts. This is a great way to test market interest and raise funds for mass production, while allowing those who support the project to be part of the development process.

By using Kickstarter to launch the Wanhao Smart Pad, we can benefit from the excitement and engagement of early adopters. This gives us the opportunity to receive valuable feedback and iterate on our product before launching it at scale. In addition, crowdfunding allows us to remain independent and faithful to our vision without having to make compromises for outside investors.

Additionally, by meeting our funding goals on Kickstarter, we can validate our product and prove its appeal, which can attract the attention of traditional investors for future support.

In short, Kickstarter allows us to connect directly with our community, obtain preliminary funding for production, and improve our product through user feedback, all while maintaining our independence and integrity as creators.
