    Hey guys, while I've done a-little googling, I've decided to ask for your help with the next stage of my business. There seems to be an immense amount of value here. Anyways, I've been prototyping sensors for a home security system and have come to a roadblock. How do I prototype the plastic enclosures, and in a way that efficiently converts to a manufacturable product? In return for your advice I will keep this thread updated so you can learn from my experience as it occurs, along with any responses I get.


    Thanks.

    #1: I'm currently most interested in home 3D printers, does anyone have any expertise in this area? The printer I am looking at right now: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073ZLSMFT?tag=product-widget-20

    Had good luck with this printer building our prototypes. Pretty decent size for full scale prototypes depending on product size. Fair price for what you get.

    Have a look at 3DHub. I have found it more cost and time effective than running my own printer.
