Project Idea feedback! Answered

Hello! I am currently doing a project for school in the realm of digital design and tech where we have to create and develop an idea to solve a problem. I have chosen to create a laser cutter and need feedback about the considerations of what it should be like, price range, features, functionality and etc. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

So here is my survey https://goo.gl/forms/jSFCAYq4QEjStf522

Anything other input other from the survey is welcome as well!

Good joke!
You register to post a survey...
So not only are you too lazy to some decent research yourself but you want others to do half of your project for free...
The feedback pages here are for feedback on this website or things related to it but not to post your own surveys....
You missed the point by miles ;)

Actually, this happens a lot - students use the site as a resource without registering until they need something.

I don't mind taking us as a source of info.
Don't mind either if someone is asking for help with the right details and not just because of being too lazy to use Google.
But with nothing at all in the profile asking to do a survey is like an insult if you ask me.
If you ask for a survey for a good cause I won't mind at all as I simply assume good intentions.
Just give me one good reason why I would do a survey to promote someone I don't know, who never contributed anything here and is obviously too lazy to improve on the grades by doing the research himself (or herself) ? ;)

The survey *is* the research. I don't know the author's home nation (and I'm disappointed that they haven't joined in this conversation yet), but here in the UK, if you are designing something in a "making" subject, you are required to survey your target market and use the results to modify your brief or inform your specifications.

Marks are earned for the quality of the survey (wording of questions etc), and how the data is manipulated, analysed and displayed.

(Which reminds me - @slackj; that's not a brilliantly-designed survey. Your "price" question lacks currency [pounds sterling? US dollars? NZ dollars? Bitcoin?] shows you have not been online and performed even a casual survey of what is already available ["100" wouldn't even cover shipping, never mind an actual laser cutter].)

Whoops, I've been busy over the weekend but I will now fix that thanks! I wanted to cover a wide range of prices and adjust what I create to the target price to the best of my ability, even if it was quite low, but thank you for the feedback.
