The next steps for this design are:

1. To make further manufacturability refinements to improve the quality of the final product and simplify the plastic moulds in order to reduce cost.
2. To create a physical model of the unit. Stereolithography or milling would be the preferred processes as they are fast and highly accurate. Milling is likely a lower cost though it will take longer to produce.
3. To make further refinements as necessary and begin negotiations with manufacturers.
