The internal detailing of the components is coming along nicely, and I’ve gotten confirmation from the lectures that the components below can be manufactured using the Injection Moulding process, albeit more work is necessary in order to keep them together. If I use snap fittings, it would require double the amount of side action, whereas if I use a fastening (metal, nylon), it would drive down costs while still allowing the components to be disassembled. There are a lot of decisions that have to be made very quickly:
