    Prototype Injection Molding

    SOURCING 
    Hey Guys, I've been working on a fitness wearable for the last few years and am at the stage where I'm ready to start polishing the final product. I have my PCB, Code, Phone App, and marketing materials ready -- however the final shell for the device is 3D printed and very "prototype-esc"...

    Your business ideas are failing, here is why.

    IDEA MINDSET

    Create Prototype Myself Or Outsource?

    I've been sitting on a new product idea for the past couple days and would love to get a prototype done for cheap to gauge the interest of my target market. Don't want to divulge too much info on the outside, but the product will consist of heavy-duty nylon fabric, straps, a rubber lining, and...

    Prototype vs. Validation vs. Patent. What to do first?

    Please, help me out of this loop :) I've got an idea for a product. It's a physical product that does not exist. Would be useful for a specific profession (around 3M of them in US/Canada). The idea came based on my own experience. Functionally, it exists as a stationary installation, costs many...

    Is there a need to prototype? How? Is there well-worn/standard path?

    I have a lot of product ideas. That is a good problem to have. The one I suspect will be most profitable is for a change to part of the common equipment used by the military, search and rescue, and sometimes civilian enthusiasts. It is a combination of products that, together, fulfill a need so...

    From prototype to ...?

    Longtime lurker, first time poster. :) For an existing outdoor/recreation product, I've hacked together a prototype that's basically an add-on feature to the main product. (My prototype is an electronics thing--I'm not really an electronics guy, but the prototype works & does what I want)...

    Habits For Desert Of Desertion

    MINDSET 
    I know MJ really touched on this in Unscripted. But just out of curiosity, I wanted to know something. What have some of you done in order to make the walk through the dessert of desertion a bit more enjoyable, if that's even possible? Or just make it in general, other than a strong why or pure...

    3D Prototyping, pre-selling and developing a physical product.

    EXECUTION 
    Long story short: My cousin has spent thousands of hours on one hobby over the past 20 years. So a week ago when she complained to me about a pain that most of the other hobbyists share, you bet I took her damn seriously. Follow along in this thread as I explore this opportunity together with...

    MARKETPLACE 
    This is a personal mentor / coaching program meant for anyone who is serious about getting off to a solid start - or to take an existing product based business to the next level. A few years back, I offered coaching in this thread, which was heavily Amazon-focused. I coached several people...

    Outsourcing your Prototyping

    SOURCING 
    From idea to conception, I have finally built 2 separate prototype designs made out of all plastic, through 3D printing. Great! However, I don't think my 3D design will be accurate enough to send to a large manufacture and expect them to create the first product correct, the first time. I...
