You brought up that magic valuable prototyping process not me.
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.
I did not ask specifically for you to respond with your same tired "I love high prices" explanations.
These are the comments that inflame discussion. It is juvenile, but perhaps fitting.
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.
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 was kind of hoping it was your thinking helmet, but you must have misplaced it.
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.
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.
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.
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 keep on saying this over and over again: I think the boards are expensive, but they are not overpriced. Maybe your helmet comes with ear plugs and reality distorters?
I do not think the alternative is cheaper boards I think the alternative is no boards.
