Hi,
I live in sydney Australia. I've just acquired a provisional patent but not sure where to go to get a small batch of prototypes made...preferably China, Vietnam. Can anyone help?

Hi, @Micheadphone ,

If possible, the best thing to do starting out is to make the prototypes yourself.

Have you researched the Australian market yourself?

It might be even "better" than other options like China or Vietnam?

I'd like to refer you to @Walter Hay and @B. Cole for more information. Walter is well-experienced with the working of China. And Cole is killing it, making his own product.

@Micheadphone Having prototypes made in China, even with a patent, can be risky. I know of cases in which a product has been out on the market before the inventor or designer even saw a prototype from his China supplier.

If we had some idea what the product is it would help.

If you are willing to disclose that to me privately I would be pleased to help privately. I have done so for quite a few Fastlane members, and I scrupulously keep all information confidential. I have a considerable amount of experience in very wide range of manufacturing industries, and spent 20 years as an industrial troubleshooter.

What is your goal? Proof of concept? Licensing?
Also, during provisional stage take care to ensure that no one uses the invention without NDA. Otherwise it will enter public use category. In the US after one year oft use an invention cannot be assigned a patent unless it was non-public.
Best of luck.
