    Before even thinking of my product I must consider the market for it. But the proof of concept is in the product I can make most effective. The higher performance of the product in design and proof of concept and of course new models innovative design will surely improve through test and evolution of product to final or near final concept. Like laundry soap there is always new and improved from many perspectives as this evolution takes place over years of design considerations and testing. Even a new bright engineer might be able to improve the product performance a little bit each year of a generation of considering all the inputs and how to arrange them to get the best result. The future belongs to the most efficient as mother natures rules survival of the fittest. Those that have less performance will slowly loose in the long term and we can see this already happing in the market place. comments are welcome to how to do all of this. Even the steam engine builder did not have the technology to create his idea. But it was the start of the industrial revolution when steam was use to pump water out of coal mines. Then the steam engine allowed for driving factories and the era of steam took off. Even then over time the diesel was much more powerful and much more efficient. Would you comment on funding and how to get some for proof of concept.

    will you make me a prototype with the agreement that once I get a deal you get paid and or get a piece of it

    Very good video. Does anyone know any manufacturer places where I can take my design into production?

    I should patent my idea prior to forwarding it to an industrial designer, correct?

    Before you start discussing your idea with a designer wouldn't you get your idea's description patented first? Even getting your descriptions notarized and the old 'poor man patent' might be good before you start discussing your idea with designers and others, at least I would think so.

    how on earth does one like me find a designer to help me draw. Ive tried my best chicken stratch to display my product, but need a legit design manufacturers will comprehend to build. Where could I find a designer or computer program to help me design it. Free and/or cheap but reliable. any tips????

    For people who are finding this video and still have questions afterward, allow me to address some of those questions. The speaker in this video outlined the process for a plastic "Form and Function" prototype only. Prototypes can vary wildly and serve different purposes. There are "Functionality" prototypes that look nothing like the final product but instead showcase the function. Next, there are "Form and Function" prototypes that have the general shape and functionality of the final product, but it does not necessarily have a completely polished look and feel. Then there are "Model" prototypes; which are near-perfect aesthetic representations of the final product. Finally, there are "Complete" prototypes; which are essentially the product manufactured in an extremely small batch without the production of tooling. Each form of prototyping serves a different purpose based on the needs of the product. 3D printing is an excellent tool for producing plastic prototypes; however, 3D printing is not the best tool when needing to produce rubber-like, glass-like, or metal parts. There exist other techniques, such as silicone casting, that are used to produce those parts. Electronics prototyping is another beast entirely, and typically a client works with both a physical prototyping business and an electronics prototyping business simultaneously. Two separate companies tend to give better results due to their independent specialization.

    Hi thanks for info. But some prototypes require more than the plastic body! How can you help to get the electronic done inside the prototype. Thanks
