At DiveDesign, we use the Dremel DigiLab 3D45 3D Printer for prototyping iterative models as well as high-fidelity prototypes for demonstrations with clients. The high fidelity of the prints allows us to present our models with precise detailing so that we can provide our clients with more communicative visuals, and save time on finishing, as our prints have required little-to-no post-printing refinement thus far.
Incorporating 3D printers into the day-to-day operations of companies has become an increasingly followed practice, and for good reason; now even small companies can produce 3D prints to show their clients without needing a prototyping facility or outsourcing. Printers usually only have one large investment (the printer itself) then small incremental purchases of filament, replacement nozzles, and cleaning supplies. 3D printers also allow companies to produce presentable models faster than most other traditional prototyping methods, with simple finishing methods.
