I work in lower volumes as well. I guess this particular presentation at a "maker faire" of how to manufacture in China, is like being at a DIY bicycle show, and viewing a presentation on how to build water-cooled motorcycles in commercial volumes. Yes, interesting and insightful, but seems to lose sight of the DIY biker ethos (whatever that is).
It seems that responses to my original post are geared to "you're wrong, you can only manufacture in China in volume and quickly, you don't know what you're talking about, watch the video" whereas my initial statement was, reworded, "does manufacturing in China fall in line with the Maker Movement?" The responses seem to have fast-forwarded past my initial comment.
