Anyone here come up with an idea and actually produce it? My friend and I invented a product that is composed of fabric and molded plastic. My friend actually made a working prototype and we took it to a "Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing" company in Texas. We paid them a $3,500 "engineering fee" with a contract to order a minimum 500 units when their "engineered model" was complete. We are ready, willing, and able to order 1,000 of them. We belive that we have a hot product, that will sell, and we want to move on this. The damn company has yet to provide us with the working model. It's been over a year. They blame the Chinese. Apparently, NONE of the design, engineering, or production is done in the USA. They sub out EVERYTHING to China. How did YOU get your product made and into the market?!
