I think you misinterpreted me when you saw I said. We should be working for on it with answering questions.
What I meant was, asking outside people how much it will cost to build a kit and getting any sort of detailed info. Its just not going to be correct and that info would be better asked to the actual employees since thats where your real budget numbers will be found.
Im just saying if "you" want to do this. This is maybe I probably went wrong in thinking that you want to do this.
I was saying its impossible to find a cost. As its based on how good you want to be and many other factors.
This is what real companies go through and even the 50,000 dollar number is really irrelevant because your not ae. They might have a partnership with a certain platics company, metal cutting company , cnc maching company and so on. They might have the top engineer for this or that and for you to best them or come out with a comparble kit you might have to triple or even quadruple that number.
Or you could just make a kit for maybe 1000 dollars max yourself and have it out by the end of the year.
Im just saying this is really unanswerable. But the 50,000 dollar info dig was definently helpful. But who knows what that would really truly cost someone else. That could be budget based for ae, or that could be top dollar exspensive and more than they wanted.....
