hello to all the FreeCAD community.
First of all thank you for your forum and the nice work all the contributors are doing here.
I personally run a little company specialized in designing water housing for still and video camera. Our market is a niche as it is not for diving but for water surface sports such as surf, windsurf, kayaking, sailing etc...
Running a small business like ours is not very easy as I do not have any help from the banks or whatsoever. All the money I put in this business comes from my own pocket. I am not rich (I wish i could be ) and I have a lot to do to run my staff, the prod and the R&D !!!
We are now at a stage where we need some help.
I mainly design some of my parts myself with Sketchup but this soft is not very appropriate when it comes to mechanical drawings and my personal skills are not very high. I can play around when it comes to easy shapes but as soon as it gets more complicated I get lost.
At the workshop we have a 3D printer (UP Box) and a small CNC where we print and machine some 3D parts. From those printed or machined parts we make our masters and then a mold where we cast resins to make the parts we sell.
We are based in France and in Bali where our production unit is. So we can work on remote location, this is OK with us.
I do believe this is a very interesting project and that is why I am writing this post right now because may be someone out there in the CAD community will be interested by helping us on developing new products. For the moment I cannot promise a big income, but I suppose we can work out on something descent depending on our sales. so i would like to invite anyone out there interested by our project to write me back and I can give him (or her) more details about that.
Thank you all readers for reading this message. I hope we will find someone here to help us out.
Cheers to all of you.
