128. Rapid prototyping and diverse world

Now the rapid prototyping has became very popular in many diverse world. So you can see many things about the rapid prototyping.

The manufacturing industry has come a long way from the days of long assembly lines and lack of automated efficiency. Today those who are involved in product development, engineering, and other form-giving applications can benefit from the advantages in various applications provided by rapid prototyping technology.

By definition, rapid prototyping is the automatic construction of physical components using additive manufacturing technology. Some of the first techniques used for rapid prototyping emerged in the late 1980s and were primarily used to produce models and prototype parts. Today, rapid prototyping techniques are used for a much wider range of applications and are even used to manufacture production-quality parts in relatively small numbers.

In rapid prototyping rapid doesn’t always mean fast. It can mean a few hours or a few days, depending on the object being prototyped. Other rapid prototyping technologies involve laying liquid materials that are cured with different technologies. In lamination systems, thin layers are cut to shape and joined together.

Rapid tooling is another technology that uses rapid prototypes, either indirectly or directly, as a tooling pattern for creating a mold. Rapid tooling techniques enables manufacturers to have molds that supply prototype parts with the correct material at a substantially reduced cost in a fraction of the time it takes to produce parts from production tooling processes.
