PRE-ORDER SANKAKKEI AT STORE.CREATION-ARTS.COM
The Sankakkei prototypes are printed in Strong and Flexible polished plastic, making it possible to produce this product in small quantities. But due to a recent price change by Shapeways, and the fact that printing multi-parts objects is absurdly expensive, I had to 'sprue' the loose parts in my models (like the vintage model-kits from back in the old days) to keep it all affordable.
With your help, and other micro-investors like you, Sankakkei can be factory produced in high quality fine plastic in an unlimited range of colors, for way less production costs and without any 'sprue'. This will also give me the opportunity to produce a stylized corresponding box packaging for you to store your seeds and rods in.
