Excellent post Aaron--Very informative.  One issue I feel might be relevant to micro-molding is how you "QC" a part, specifically, what techniques are used to measure compliance with critical-to-quality dimensions.  This has to be a bear and require special techniques. 

I was happy you mentioned "additive" manufacturing as a method of initial prototyping.  I follow that technology closely. It's very useful as a tool when doing form, fit and function.

I also feel most of the micro-molded products are "gang-molded" so production occurs with multiple products being produced from one shot.

Again, excellent post.

Without failure and loss, there is no success. Sadly, some failures and losses are greater than others. That’s certainly true of engineer and Space Race astronaut Gus Grissom.
