   Up front costs tend to be very high due to design, testing, and tooling requirements. If you are going to produce parts in high volumes you want to make sure you get the design right the first time. That is more complicated than you might think. Getting the design right includes:

   Designing and then prototyping the part itself to specification
Initial prototype development is typically completed on a 3D printer and often in a different material (such as ABS plastic) than the final part will be constructed in
Designing an injection mold tool for an initial production round
Typically generating 300-1000 injection molded prototypes in the production material requires the development of an injection mold tool.
Refining any and all details in the injection mold tool prior to mass-production in an injection mold manufacturing plant.
