    Hi there. I'm prototyping some iPad Stand designs and am looking for honest feedback. Below are some pictures. Features of this stand include 3-D printed stainless steel, customized with alphanumeric text, keychain loop, portability.
    Pricing would be between $30-$40.

    Would love to hear what you think. Thanks!

    Agree, you'd need something to cushion between the stand and iPad.

    What drives the pricing to $30-$40?
    You do need cushion and I'd say a bit more of an angle.

    Personally I think the price is way too high, and the personalization is cool, but I would rather it be cheaper than have my name. But I am pretty cheap haha

    Also I second the cushion thing, make sure it doesn't scratch.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback. Agree with the angle and the need to prevent scratching. The price driver is the 3-D printing manufacturing technique which I don't have much control over. Without the customization, could probably find a much cheaper way to produce.

    Thanks again!
