Nate Kolbeck, from 3D Brooklyn will be our guest speaker to kick off our fall meetup. You will learn how to understand what you should be thinking about during the early stages of product development. Learn how to use prototyping to refine your product design and get ready for manufacturing. Get a crash course on modern fabrication technologies, like 3D-printing, that are helping to speed and reduce the costs of prototyping. Learn what manufacturers need from you before they can start making your product. Discuss the pros and cons of manufacturing in the USA vs China.
