It’s been a while but we’re almost there! I always underestimate the time it takes to bring an idea from concept to prototype and then to actual production. I always thought that manufacturing comes easy as soon as you have a fully working prototype. Wrong! To be very honest, I learned the hard way that there is such an art called Design for Manufacturability. Quoting Wikipedia: (also sometimes known as design for manufacturing or DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture. I enjoy designing and working on prototypes. I think they are cool! I try my best to make them as aesthetically pleasing as possible and I love looking at the result! But are they easy to manufacture? Ignoring DFM, as I did in this production run, can be costly. Hah! What do I know, I’m a software engineer. Now I know better!
That said, it’s all worth the wait. Promise! 😀
