I'm currently doing a course to develop a small business idea a friend and I had. There's new technology available that can turn a 3D computer model into a real object, via 3D printing (otherwise called rapid prototyping). The 3D print can be used as a master pattern to then create a mould and cast the object in silver (or gold, or platinum). There is a place here in Australia, in Melbourne, that I send models to, and they do all the printing and casting.
We've used this to create some really funky jewelry, and we'd like to go commercial. As part of developing this as a business, I have to do some market research. I've written a survey, which you can get here:http://www.lisa3d.org/misc/Market%20Research.txt
If you would like to spare a few minutes and help me out, I would be very grateful! Save it to your computer, open it in notepad (you may have to turn on "word wrap") and then answer the questions. Then copy and paste it into an email and send it to [email protected]
(Note: The spelling in the survey is Australian/UK English. It may seem weird to Americans :P).
However, I would also like to hear people's opinions on jewelry in general, especially if you have any concerns about vegan jewelry.
