How was Spire designed?

Spire was designed using Autodesk Inventor, and first prototyped in plastic with a normal FDM 3D printer. The design was finalized after about a month of late nights, dozens of prototypes, and about 9000 cups of coffee.

How is the Spire made?

Spire is made with Binder Jet 3D printing. The process starts by building the pen out of stainless steel powder using a “binder” to hold the powder together. The pen is then moved into an oven where the binder is burned off, the powder is sintered into a solid piece, and bronze is added to fill the space left by the removal of the binder.

There's a problem with my product, what do I do now?

Panic! (But don’t really.) Send us an email at Contact@DesignTheEverything.com and we will help you resolve the issue.

Do people actually ask these questions?

No, we had to make our website before we launched our Kickstarter, but if you have any questions that weren’t covered here, you can email us at Contact@DesignTheEverything.com
