The art of copying: how a 3D printer clone was stopped from launching on Kickstarter (and failed on Indiegogo) https://3dprinterchat.com/the-art-of-copying-how-a-3d-printer-clone-was-stopped-from-launching-on-kickstarter-and-failed-on-indiegogo/ https://3dprinterchat.com/the-art-of-copying-how-a-3d-printer-clone-was-stopped-from-launching-on-kickstarter-and-failed-on-indiegogo/#comments Tue, 29 May 2018 17:12:12 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=22776 Originally this post The art of copying: how a 3D printer clone was stopped from launching on Kickstarter (and failed on Indiegogo) appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

For many companies manufacturing in China, imitation is also a serious business challenge undermining months of research and development and diluting the value of a product or brand. At Kodama, we experienced product cloning first hand.

In this post, we want to share the story of how our latest product was copied before it became available to the market, our main lessons from the whole affair, and how we managed to come out of it on top.

But before we do that, here is an overview of the practice of copying (new) products.

Tools

Your 3D printer was printing great and now it’s not. 3D printers print great when you first get them and if you don’t properly maintain them, they will fail. In this article I will explain how to maintain your printer to ensure your ability to continue turning out great prints. All 3D printers require some amount of routine maintenance to continue printing.
