Last year we created and shared our first Fictiv State of Hardware Survey with our community of engineers and designers. Your responses culminated in our inaugural 2016 State of Hardware Report, where we shared information on:

  • How much time you allocate to build a functional prototype
  • Most popular CAD software programs
  • Top-of-mind challenges in bringing a successful product to market
  • Development functions you keep in-house vs outsourced
Data from the 2016 State of Hardware Report

This year, we’re digging deeper into the questions mechanical engineers and industrial designers care most about, to help you deepen your understanding of your field, career, and industry. The 2017 State of Hardware survey seeks to gather collective knowledge on:

  • The most useful tools and resources you rely on to learn new things
  • The most important practical skills that impact your job
  • Criteria you use to make key decisions
  • How you spend your time and what you care most about

As a thank you for contributing to the survey, we’ll send you a free CNC Periodic Table of Elements poster in return*

Also note that we take privacy very seriously at Fictiv and will never sell your information for any reason.

Take the 2017 State of Hardware Survey.
