I feel you about online payments, or PayPal in general. I only added PayPal at the request of several customers. I prefer WePay, an up and coming rival to PayPal. I've had nothing but great service from them, and their payment system is so simple and very inexpensive.

I did the initial renderings in Photoshop and Illustrator, and then the vendor/manufacturer produced the 3D files. I'm not sure what they used. I raised money by preselling units based of the Photoshopped graphics, an $18 website, some excited friends, and a little street-cred I've built up here at the DP and at RPF.

I'm still in the preliminary design and conceptualization stage on my new invention. The product engineer I was working with said the part will probably cost around $6-$8 to produce here in the US, but I still need to pay for the 3D modeling and design assistance, the tooling, and the first production run. I'm hoping for around $15000-$20000, I can get started. If I could produce my own prototypes and 3D models, my cost could be substantially reduced.
