NEMO Equipment

CAPINC case study- NEMO Equipment

NEMO Equipment, located in Dover, NH, designs and manufactures outdoor equipment, tents and shelters. They are best known for their AirSupported Technology, which incorporates low pressure airbeams in place of traditional aluminum tent poles.

NEMO uses their Dimension 3D printer weekly for their prototyping needs. It helps them streamline the prototyping process and focus on ground-breaking and useful design. At NEMO, they collaborate in design through research, brainstorms, and sketching. Those concepts are developed and then implemented in the computer 3D program SolidWorks. Then the parts are printed and used in prototyping and testing.

Through feedback and test results, they modify models and print updated parts. Once these parts are up to the NEMO standard, they send them off for production. As NEMO’s product line expands beyond tents, it continues to thrive as a young company. The Dimension 3D printer is pivotal in their fast-paced design environment and in their commitment to making the most innovative and high quality equipment for outdoor adventure.
