108. What is rapid manufacturing?

Rapid manufacturing is also named RM. A natural extension of rapid prototyping is rapid manufacturing, the automated production of salable products directly from CAD data. Currently only a few final products are produced by RP machines, but the number will increase as metals and other materials become more widely available. RM will never completely replace other manufacturing techniques, especially in large production runs where mass-production is more economical.

For short production runs, however, RM is much cheaper, since it does not require tooling. RM is also ideal for producing custom parts tailored to the user's exact specifications. A University of Delaware research project uses a digitized 3D model of a personís head to construct a custom-fitted helmet. NASA is experimenting with using RP machines to produce spacesuit gloves fitted to each astronautís hands. From tailored golf club grips to custom dinnerware, the possibilities are endless.

In fact, the rapid manufacturing has many other purposes, if you want to know, you can search it online, believe you can find many information about it.
