120. The usage of rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping is used by many companies. And it bas already brought us a big change. So it is very imporant for our life.

All the rapid prototyping technologies in current use have many things in common. All make use of additive processes. Rapid prototyping makes use of additive construction as the means of creating solid prototype objects which has the distinct advantage of creating almost any shape or form that even the best machining and tooling methods may not be able to achieve. During the ensuing development, virtual prototyping goes through a number of stages that eventually turns designs into fully testable three dimensional models.

All the rapid prototyping machines being used slowly form the three dimensional models by putting together thin, two-dimensional layers one at a time. The three dimensional manifestation of the virtual design is formed from the bottom up. Models are formed on an elevator-like platform from virtual CAD designs. The platform is lowered a layer-height at a time once a layer is completed. The thinner the layer, the smoother the finish will be on the completed prototype model. Once the model is completely formed, it may be sanded, plated or painted, depending on material used.

In fact, the rapid prototyping will bring us a bigger change, so we should know more things about it.
