    Considered it, but injection molding is super expensive and the flexibility of a 3d printed design encourages people to mold it into what they need.

    I'm sure it's something that can easily be changed. He may already have the 3d file without the logo.

    Looking forward to this project. Love the clean simplicity of the hardware to consolize the MV1C. Now we just need a OMVS logo

    For sure. It will depend on how many you sell as well though. A single 3D printed part like this is easily 50 times the cost of an injected part and it presumably takes a day to make which means the wear and tear on your personal printer is significant. It also melts in the sun, has grooves all over it, etc. The economies will trade places at some point. You need to manufacture like 1000 to break even on a mold and thatís probably totally unrealistic. Iíd look into it though. Even offshore IP parts beat 3D stuff in almost every way.
