My previous companies routinely outsourced 3D printing as part of the product development process. Now with my own printer, I reliably design parts on SolidWorks and print them to high tolerance. It's not a toy. It's a tool! : )
I have a MendleMax FFF (FDM) machine. I routinely print ABS parts for my internal prototyping efforts.

I have been managing venture-backed technology start-ups for many years. I have been following the 3d printing industry since the 90's, and I am now starting a new 3D Printing company based on a new technology to print metals at low cost (not SLS!).
