For the marketing and Business-model-canvas i’ve looked up multiple ways to create our product. We are working with the light blue-bean which is the basis of our product.
The hard part is finding out how to create our case/housing.
There are 3 options for this.
- External mechanical engineering
With external mechanical engineering we rely on an external company to create our cases. the prices are not set and need to be discussed.
This service would not fit us as a starting company. this option would be better if you can really mass produce the product, because you need to reach the breaking point of the cost of the material and production.
- External 3D printing
This is were we let our products be printed by an external 3D printing company.
They have a wide arange of materials that can be printed and allot of experience.
This might be our best option becuase we can’t mass produce and we don’t have the money to invest in our own 3D printing equipment.
- Internal 3D printing
Internal 3D printing could be something we could invest in.
We would need to know what materials and dimensions we will need for our 3D printer. We will need to know how many we can produce with that printer and if it’s possible to sell enough units to justify the investment.
Mechanical engineering companies.
I’ve looked around and found multiple mechanical engineering companies.
but with all there is now clear distinction of price and process, this will need to be decided between the two parties.
3D printing companies
I’ve found an impressive and clear 3D printing company that has allot of materials and experience.
Deciding our method.
We will need to work out our product and see how much it will cost us to make it using different methods. Compare that to the amount of interesst in our products and then decide how we are going to realize our product based on those numbers.
