I've got no manufacturing knowledge but I want a prototype made locally. It's a pretty simple mild steel "deep drawn" (I think) kitchen item.

How do I make this happen? Who do I need to approach who can exact plans for a mold/die/whatever and actually make it?

yes it will work as long as you give the specifications and money. though its best advised to use a draft or a proper blueprint
>>
>>1472768
Is the 3D model just so they know exactly what they are supposed to make? I assume the cnc machine is to cut a stamp or die... I'm fairly certain the object I'm trying to make would never be cnc'd directly. it's basically a sheet metal vessel.
>>
>>1472813
Ye the 3d model is just an example, that's why you need to learn how to make a 3d model first.

For a prototype cnc is prob your best option, I'm not familiar with deep drawing, but this seems like a method only used for mass production.

This is just a thought, but you can maybe 3d print it and then cast it in aluminium somewhere else using the print for the mold.
>>
>>1472720
>locally
where would that be? here in germany it was quite easy to find firms that produce custom deepdraw tools. also what are you planning to produce, if it's not a secret?
>>
>>1472720
There are prototyping companies that help bring ideas to life. They can help with drawing up some design specs and determining which materials will be best. they usually also have connections to manufacturers so if you want to start mass producing they will connect you.

it's pretty expensive though, but that depends more on how complex it is what you're building.

I make about $25,000 a year working a shit job. Ive saved about 7,000 and can save $10,000 by the end of the year. If I keep going in 3 years I could have $30,000. Should I keep going or should I start investing in stocks and double/triple my money by taking a risk? Also I was talking to a financial adviser and he said I should split up $2,000, 50/50 one for stocks and one for bonds. I was thinking putting 2,000 in stocks, but I should diversify my portfolio. I wanna be more aggressive so I could have high returns. Any advice?

Learn to mitigate that risk.

Learn stops and shorts.

Learn stock options.

My startup is failing.

We raised $500k three years ago, even though we weren't profitable.

The funds are now quickly coming to an end, and it's quite clear that we won't ever be profitable.

Everyone seems to be taking this as a successful experiment ("we learned market wasn't ready") but to me it's also a big failure. I can't even humor the idea of getting a 'normal' job i.e. working for someone else.

I'm probably going to spend the last few months enjoying the lifestyle, not having to report to anyone, the great company culture, turning up at 11am and working in the middle of the night.

Also drinking. I've been drunk every day for the last two weeks.

That idea is a gimmick that would never work out realistically. Were you making 3D models of each and every store?

How in the hell did you raise $500k!? Which idiot gave you the most money? Why didn't you settle with making a mobile game, they're VERY easy to make yet no one puts effort into them - you could've sunk that $500k into one and made something great. Hell if I had that I would open a convenience store and write manga for the rest of my life and make some doujinshi to give back to the community.

I am starting a YouTube journey and I thought I'd post it here.

I started uploading video's 5 days ago and already got 10.000 views total. I have more 70 video's uploaded and I upload about 10 to 30 video's a day.

My aim is to get 1 million views a month, this would be about 1000 euro's a month I would get from adsense.

I did some calculations and I calculated that 100 video's = 10.000 views thus I would need to have 1.000.000 / 10.000 x 100 = 100 x 100 = 10.000 video's uploaded.

Since I upload an average of 15 video's a day that will take me 2 years of uploading. Than I can live of my passive income stream. Considering that if you have 10.000 video's some are bound to go viral because this is mathematically inevitable it should probably take much less time to hit 1 million views a month so my guess is at 5 months in.

I was doing this for IT companies as it's a relatively small town and in the south and you see rednecks try to administer networks by getting angry and real loud. They actually think that solves problems.

been at a job where a guy was stuck mentally in 2003 and all copies of windows 7, 8, etc were a virus

been at another job where they had every single computer of 200 of them on a public IP

been at another job where I got in trouble for teaching someone what a router was after they wasted over 7 hours of client's time being completely down trying to plug a modem into a switch

quit all of these after 4 months as most of the time they would try to shove these "little problems" under the rug and every 2-3 days was the same shit of explaining with massive amounts of proof what was going on, nobody would listen, just thinking I am some vocal contrarian, then it would get so bad where we were down more than up, and I had to quit

Worked as bartender since 18, I am 21 now. I got fired only once, because I messed up my calendar and realized I have shift that day, but I was already 3-4 hours too late. I call the boss, he says no problem to come in and that we will talk. Note: I was working for about a month, just so they see if I was good enough and everything up unitl that point was going well. So I come to the place and boss sits me down and says he and his fiance decided to ditch me. The funny thing is I got another job at the other bar, so as I'm driving back home I just massaged another boss that I can come in and work at the party tonight. She was happy to hear that and I got the job.

The other funny thing is, I got a job offer at three bars that weekend. I also never got refused at interview, they always took me and I could work the next day.

I don't know, but as a student (even though I'm male) you should of got job 100% in bartending I think. It can be pain in the ass, but just drink few shoots secretly when nobody is watching and cheer yourself up.

I can actually go a bit into this if anyone wants lol. Been working as bartender 3.5 years now and going to collage next year.

Am I mentally fucked for the rest of my life? Is happiness not possible? I continuously want more and more.

I'm doing great for my age. Making around $10k/month after expenses, have traveled to every continent including Antarctica, have been with a couple girls that stun me as to why they chose me. But it's not enough...

I constantly belittle and call myself ugly. I'm constantly longing to own a Fortune 500 business, the playboy model girlfriend, and the multi-million dollar NYC condo. I hate myself and never think I've done well enough.

Dunno why idiots spread this meme. QE in the US ended in 2014, and globally its been on the decline for years. Take Japan out of the charts (which is fair, since QE has never really worked in Japan anyway) and you have a pretty dramatic trendline even with the ECB's ongoing operations.

I guess some people just make up excuses to make themselves feel better about missing boat.

You don't need to actively budget your entire life in a spreadsheet to save.

>Everyone I know has either cashed out or entered shorts in order to ride the inevitable market correction.

Get around smarter people.

>So who the fuck is still bidding up prices?

Obviously a lot of people if the price is going up.

Why? Prob because Yellen's speech was a sounding board for whatever market participants wanted to project and she probably doesn't have the balls to raise rates if she can't give a straight-forward speech.
