A Clay Model and a 3D Printer walk into a bar...

From product concept, to a 3D-printed prototype, to a licensing deal, and all the decision points along the way.

The American Dream of making your own way and acting on your product ideas is alive and well, via 3D printing! How many times have you envisioned a product, a fix for an everyday annoyance, only to quickly dismiss it due to the daunting road that lies just ahead of your great idea? The forks in that road include: designs, prototypes, market research, patents, manufacturing, licensing, contracts, etc, etc, etc.

We will go "On the Road" with Matt's real journey with the help and advice of The 3D Printing Store (3DPS) all along the way. Matt's story is still unfolding, in the form of a licensing deal, as we type this teaser! We will show you the clay model and the prints and give you examples of the thought process and research that preceded this deal, going all the way back to the clay model he brought to 3DPS less than six months ago.

We will provide the models; you provide the questions.
