Hey, let's say for some reason that all the [non-administrative] members here decided to come together to form a corporation. It would be nice to know what resources we each had to bring to the table, as a cog in the machinery.

As some of you may know already, I can provide the IP exptertise we would need, in addition to manufacturing, design, and engineering experience. But I'd like to know what others here would have to offer that could be relied upon (like marketing efforts, direct access to machinery, web design, warehousing, a share in your ideas, etc.)

If you would, just go along with this and mention anything that you'd be willing to contribute. It doesn't have to be everything you are personally capable of doing or providing...only what you'd want to leverage. We might be surprised by how many resources we already have available to us.

The more overlap, the better.

Thanks.

Well above all else I offer off beat humor. After that, I can make recomendations on most issues relating to plastics.
1) I can get tools quoted from 3d drawings ball parked for free, and a few detailed ones for free as well. (I don't want to burn that bridge so it would be selected ones)
2) Recomend materials based on properties, price, chemical resistance ect.
3) Give opinions on other companies quotes, and what traps to watch out for when having a tool made.
4) Suggest what molding process to use, rotational, blow, injection, reactive, vacuum forming ect.
5) When our shop is slow, I can probably have a tool built near cost. (I'll have to check with our guys and see what they would charge to do it off the clock)*
6) I can get a prototype printed from a 3d file pretty cheap. Possibly a small one at cost a time or two. (Again I'll have to check). *
7) I can make instant coffee.
8) I can shut up when told (twice) to.
9) I can have samples run (Low QTY) probably cheaper than most other companies.

* These would be favors I would be calling in that I've collected over the years. Again they would be limited to projects the group would be working on.

I'm not familiar with that expression. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I'm guessing the Think Tank. If so, it's not bad.

I have 25 + years construction experience all fields. Probably not much use here but its available. :D

Patrice (Envizion), the think tank is a private inventor's group we formed about a year ago.
