Pay to keep information private – Business Model Redesign

Pay to keep information private – Business Model Redesign

Great new collaboration tool: design electronic circuits online! teamed up with Autodesk to boost electronics and 3D design: 123D

The result: a new and inspiring way to help open source development. The idea is that the tools are free, as long as you show and share with the world what you’re working on… Otherwise pay and keep your design private.

This collaboration is not new, but ‘paying to keep information (designs) private’ is. A great way (although it might feel like extorsion 🙂 ) to open up basic design efforts and let people learn about what is electronics design all about!

Basic business model elements are also available to generate revenue: turn your designs into physical circuits with a mouse click and credit card payment.
