59. What are the main applications of Rapid Prototyping?

There are many applications of rapid prototyping technology. This technology is maturing rapidly in many fields, specially in automotive, medical, toys building, packaging, aerospace, electrical, scientific applications and so on.
Some applications are in the following:

a) Imagine there is a major exhibition next week and your new product is still in development stage, How to get the part urgently? Just send us your CAD file rest is up to us to meet your deadline.
b) Why to take a risk of getting unrealistic quotes from your suppliers by sending 2d drawings, when you can send inexpensive 3d physical part which will not only help to save money at the end but also helps to open new options to production tooling the part or tooling.
c) Manufacturers who need parts in small quantities where tooling or manufacturing cost is not justified.
d) Sometimes it is difficult for the designers or toolmakers to visualize or find out the problems in the drawings, by having the 3d part in their hands, helps them to figure out the problem and redesign it if required before investing on actual tooling.
e) Helps the medical field in many different ways especially for reconstructive surgery by making 3d models created from CT scan of the patient's body parts.
f) Quickly making master model for vacuum casting to produce small quantity of Poly Urethane parts.
g) If you are a student, scientist, teacher and you need to make a part for your next project or class demonstration, what to do? Rapid prototyping is the quick answer for you.
h) Building my new home but like to see how the design will look like in real life.
i) To make some Artistic or unique design for example statue, jewelry, special type of toy even some part is broken of your home appliance which is not easily available in the market.
j) Any spare parts or auto part hard to find in the market.
k) Tooling inserts for plastic injection molding direct in steel able to produce thousands of parts.
