Hello!

Like the most collectors have the same problems they need some cases for homebrews ;-)
So I am trying to find out if there is majority or a quantity to duplicate them.

First of all I want to find out the costs per piece but this seem to be harder then I thought.

So I want to go another way and I want ask what to you think is a plus case worth
a new one
a used one

The second question I have what do you think what quantity for a first batch is realistic?
500 pieces or maybe 1000 pieces?

if there is enough demand maybe i will start this project.
if there is already such a project tell, yes I have seen the 3d printed one looks cool but I think they were to expensive...

thanks

hi!

thanks for the fast answer.

used for a normal 3 euro ok, but for a plus case (clear one)?

but i think 5 eur for a new one with a batch of 500 pieces will not be impossible.

the cost which i have got at the moment

make a detailed step file about 500 EUR (for both parts)
print one 3d prototype 150 EUR (before making a bad batch)

after having a step file I can get details offers for
injection mold (maybe we need two molds because there are two parts)
one mold is about 6000 euros
set up costs for a batch like 500 pieces about 300 euros
price for 500 is about 1500 euros

yes I have only asked austrian quality companies so it is maybe more expensive.
but if sum together 8450 euro : 500 pieces = 16,90 per piece (if one mold is enough!!!)

what is not included shipping costs

i have also asked a chinese guy to make the step file, this would be about 350 euros but I think they are to less exactly than we ;-)

tell me your thoughts.

thanks

Are we talking approx 20e per box/case?

That is a high cost, but I would probably paid it for a few boxes... (not many)

I think it's difficult to sell a plusbox for more then, lets say, 10 euro. There is always a possibility to buy secondhand +games with healthy boxes on ebay for about that price (think about 1+, 11+). My opinion is that 5 euro for a brand new box is the limit.

a lower price for the plus case would also be in my opinion.
maybe someone have any ideas to lower the costs.

I am open for any ideas.
maybe someone in the forum is a professional mold builder ;-)

thanks
