Your initial comment to the board was that you were surprised they are the same construction. I mean there are differences in construction for sure..but same principle.Oldnbroken wrote:No, I never did. That was exactly my point to begin with...No magic filling.
You brought up that magic valuable prototyping process not me.
These are the comments that inflame discussion. It is juvenile, but perhaps fitting.I did not ask specifically for you to respond with your same tired "I love high prices" explanations.
So you put out a thread, end it with *** OK, I've got my helmet on and I'm ready for a beating, so please tell me what you know about the subject! ***
I asked you if you knew how to not click the mouse, if you don't like what you see here, but you keep clicking it.
What I am saying is that the cost of RD on small small production runs are big unless you just buy a ready made design from someone.Sorry you are having a hard time with my very specific example explaining why your assertion, that it was the huge R&D cost driving the price, was very likely wrong.
I understand what you said, I just disagree. I think on small productions having a CNC router does not make sense. I bet you thet if a company own their own CNC it will stand in a corner and devalue by far most of the time. Most cities where there are shapers will have a place where you can bring you cad drawing and they will make you the blank...but even so Much cheaper than owning a CNC..unless you make protos everyday. The point is that the information is right there in front of you. Cost of comparable products are the same...even for if the comparable industries have much much bigger production runs.I believe that theory holds no water and my detailed explanation of the Airush CNC proto and production tools capabilities makes clear why, sorry you think it makes no sense because you don't understand what I said, and what I quoted right from the mouth of Airush about their tools.
Likewise and this one I do agree with. Awwwww see we can agreeOldnbroken wrote:Hey!....welcome back again...I knew you cared!
I put my helmet on because I'm smart enough to know that if I brought up the subject of prices that maybe had room to get a bit less comfy, that I would take some kind of a beating before long, and you walked right in and gave me the hit in the head I knew was coming.
No worries there, It's not a big deal at all, I am here to learn, discuss, talk, see and hear about new stuff, look at cool videos and for general entertainment, like most of us here.
I do often value your opinion on non price related subjects, in other threads.
I guess we will have to agree to disagree on almost every point along the way in this thread though.
I just am not going to see the things you are trying to get me to see and you are not going see what I'm trying to show you either.
So, better luck next time, in another thread maybe.
Please, no hard feelings.
