I decided to get the Prusa Mini recently for my home lab. Here's the breakout of how much I had to pay -
|Cost||36686 INR||488 USD|
|Customs||16173 INR||This comes to 44% of the cost. The split is 28% GST, 7.5% customs, and the rest was DHL's handling charges|
44% feels okay for importing a really good FDM printer like the Prusa Mini, but if I was getting a SLA printer like Prusa SL1 which starts at 1400$ - it would mean I end up paying over 2000$ for it.
- Wisdom related to manufacturing, production, supply chain, and design for physical products is localized. That's why the "Indian" constraint
- I have been doing hardware for a bit now, and there's just so much to learn it's overwhelming at times. Starting and moderating a community of makers is one of my ways to make the learning a bit more accessible.
- Meeting people at meetups and conferences is one of my favorite things to do. Bouncing ideas off each other on twitter as well is a close second. Given the constraints of a post-2020 world, I think places like this forum can help with quality community-building
- I'd love to have a place to document my projects. Personal blogs feel like Cathedrals. A forum is closer to a Bazaar - which makes a lot more sense to me.
What about you - what do you think this community should be about?
