It is the 2nd project run as I haven't reached all the goals with my successfully funded 1st campaign. So here is the difference:

 

- awesome o-ring (black or red)

- awesome key-cable & key ring

- Kingston brand 32/64/128Gb flash drive USB 3.0

- higher rise of the eyelet - where the key-cable to be attached

- no sharp edges & well cleaned

Production plan

EternalCase V2 production plan
EternalCase V2 production plan

1. buy raw materials - aluminum, stainless steel, titanium (the same suppliers I have for previous project). This usually takes a week or so.

2. buy o-rings & key-cables - I've already selected the suppliers & have invoices. Delivery may take about a month.

3. buy flash drives - this may take up to 3 weeks to deliver additional amount of flash drives if the supplier (one of the biggest in Ukraine electronics distributors) short on some positions. Anyway I'll receive enough to start molding within a week from paying for flash drives.

4. buy bubble envelopes - this takes up to a week including delivery.

5. produce cases - I do receive small batches (50 pcs) from the factory as soon as they are produced. So, I hope, I may start shipping within a month after project end. This is the longest part. The case production is almost automated when mirror polishing is mainly hand work.

6. produce flash drives molded in silicone - I've managed to do this at home for at least 50 pcs daily. There may be much more if needed.

7. pack and ship - I've shipped 50 and up to 100 packages daily. World wide air delivery takes up to 3 weeks. All the packages are trackable and I do provide the # upon request.

Risks and challenges

This is my 2nd project and with the same base as 1st one. I have 100% finalized key ingredient of the the project - the case. And it's quality tested on few runs already. Second main part - flash drive molding - worked well too.

The things I want to accomplish in this 2nd run - to make the device absolutely perfect. There were mistakes with o-rings and key-rings. New eternal case will also be delivered with some post production - cleaner & with no sharp edges. I want to have this details superior too and they are way simplier - so I do not observe here any risks and the funding goal also is pretty low because of this.

International delivery is worked great for 1000+ packages & tracking option is available too.
