Feedback needed: Prototype platform, interesting or not?

Hey everyone!

I need some feedback on an idea that I have. It’s something that has been stuck in my head for quite a while and I could use some honest feedback.

The idea is to have an online platform to help developers make a prototype fast. When developing a new product, having a prototype as early as possible (even just a simple model in the beginning) helps with short learning loops, getting early customer feedback, and explaining what it is you want to make. The platform would offer:

– education on design and engineering, think articles, videos, tutorials;

– a community of innovators/entrepreneurs/engineers to connect to if you need help;

– a community of makerspaces/companies who can build your prototype;

– a library of helpful 3rd party solutions such as software and services (such as design and simulation software) you can access at a discount.

The end goal would be to have a one-stop-shop for all your prototyping needs, from simple sketch tool to fully functional products. This could even be extended to (small scale) manufacturing later. Note that this is not instead of makerspaces and prototyping companies, but rather an extension to get in contact with these networks (at a discount).

The business model of this platform would be via a monthly subscription to get access to all of the above. Another income stream could be affiliate sales of the 3rd party solutions, although it should still always be available at a discount to members.

Given the years of experience we have here, I would love to hear your thoughts about such a platform. Would you be interested in such a platform? Why (not)?

Interesting Indie Hacker article that shows only 12 founders out of 17,000 members could produce 10k+ MRR. The odds look awful.

https://www.indiehackers.com/post/holy-heck-this-is-hard-8ebe864174

Granted, my personal theory is that a large chunk of the 17,000 have never sincerely attempted starting a business, but even if you take a small percentage of that 17,000 userbase, 12 founders is still a horrifically small number of (modest) success. 10k * 12 = $ 120,000/year, a paltry sum to most high-paying careers.

I welcome any CMV's that can argue better odds of success. I am floored by the numbers and thought it'd be interesting to share.
