Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast polymer production 3D printers, announced the immediate availability of a new photoplastic material called xCE-White, a functional polymer for producing end-use plastic parts and injection molding tools in minutes. xCE-White is the fastest single cure material in the company’s portfolio to date, helping deliver 20X productivity increases in AM and boasting high flexural strength comparable only to dual cure cyanate esters.

I am finishing up designing a micro reflex sight and prototyping has been a nightmare. The pieces I need don't exist in a standardized fashion, and to get them made, tooling costs often exceed $ 1000. For instance, to get a small FFC cable made to connect the PCB's, the tooling would be at least $ 1500. Then there's still the buttons, the lenses, CNCed parts, etc. The prototype thus far seems like it will barely have any of the production parts and will only work as a proof of concept, meaning another production prototype will be needed and further drains any source of funding I can get. To top it, I am not wealthy in the slightest. I exited college with my degree in engineering, hated engineering companies for being terrible and there are no local jobs for what I am trained for (they want 10+ years of experience). So I started working on this idea and after a year by myself it's almost ready. But like I said earlier, the prototype has been nothing but a nightmare to figure out. How am I supposed to get the production parts without having much money at all (~$ 3k)?
