abc 5 Posted June 29, 2014 Share Posted June 29, 2014 Sorry if this is slightly off-topic. Now that I've got into embedded programming, I am contemplating all kinds of industrial and consumer electronic products I could make. Problem is, I've never produced anything other than software. I understand this is highly specific to a product and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, but I'd like to hear some gotchas, keywords, leads, success stories, failure stories, etc. For instance: what if I am manufacturing tiny (an ounce or less) consumer electronic devices, for indoor use. They communicate wirelessly, no buttons or screens, just a bunch of small boxes. Are there any pre-fabricated cases I could purchase for this? How would I approach manufacturing them? What would be the bare bones starting cost, for the simplest project imaginable? (I don't really intend to do all that by myself, I'd probably partner with somebody who knows manufacturing, just want a very vague, very preliminary estimate of the costs, say, to the order of magnitude.) This may be a silly noob question, but got to start somewhere. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
