Evaluating the Market

The marketing team is working hard on researching and understanding pros and cons of certain features of the B9 creator and Formlabs Form 1 machine. Through the use of forums, we can see what current users are boasting about as well as added features they wish the printer could have. This information allows the build team, especially, to have a better understanding of what should be included in our printer. Also, the marketing team is researching the lowest cost of the necessities of the project, such as the actual DLP projector we will need to use in the machine. In the near future, the marketing team will be contacting individuals to obtain feedback on 3D printing to find out what they want, what the need, and what they can live without.
