103. Rapid prototyping and building materials

We all know different rapid prototyping system make use of a variety of materials to create different three dimensional objects. But a common materials used is prototyping wax.

Rapid prototyping modeling process utilizing prototyping wax to create a wax pattern can be advantageous in some ways. Forming and de-waxing a shell mold made from prototyping wax can be done quite rapidly using normal casting procedures. Using this type material simplifies in a way the model-making process that helps you to get your products to be developed and be released in the market faster.

Another materials is thermoplastics. Thermoplastics also provide excellent surface finish to prototype models. They are also machinable and weldable when required. Thermoplastics can also be joined mechanically or with the use of special adhesives. Other prototyping material choices available include plastic mold powdered metals for injection molding, and for directly creating metal prototype parts, Polycarbonate and polyphenylsulfone materials for forming durable, high-strength, and functional prototypes that are to be used for testing and final design verification.

Thus it can be seen, the rapid prototyping is very important in our life. It has already used many diffferent fields.
