Rapid Prototyping News and Research

RSS
Rapid prototyping uses advanced computer and laser technologies to produce complex three-dimensional prototypes in a fraction of the time required by more traditional technologies. The rapid prototyping process begins with a CAD solid model output to the appropriate RP file format. The file data is sliced into cross sections of 0.003 to 0.010 in. thickness. The cross sections are then fabricated in a layer additive process using one of the three available RP technologies.
