Risks and challenges

With Hubble being designed completely around off-the-shelf parts, we reduce a lot of troubles geared towards products with proprietary designs. There are countless possible vendors for bulk orders and we will vet them each properly to assure we get the highest quality and most reliable parts.

Our biggest risk would come from a surge of frame requests. Since 3D printing is only so fast, we can resolve high demands by ramping up our printer army or if certain stretch goals are made, we could switch over to injection molding.
