137. Rapid prototyping enhance innovation opportunity

Now rapid prototyping has bring us a big change. So many people talk the rapid prototyping. In fact the rapid prototyping technology enhance innovation opportunity.
In the product development, engineering, and other form-giving application domains, rapid prototyping (RP) technology can offer an excellent deliverable for various applications. Prototyping can be used for concept product design, ergonomic testing, test fitting, functional testing and even small-batch production tooling.
There are various rapid prototyping technologies available for use including Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Stereolithography (STL), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and 3D Printing. Each of these technologies has advantages and disadvantages.
3D printing is a unique form of prototype creation that is rooted in traditional rapid printing technology. A three dimensional object is created by layering and connecting successive cross sections of material. 3D printers are generally faster, more affordable and easier to use than other additive fabrication technologies. While prototyping dominates current uses, 3D printing offers tremendous potential for retail consumer uses, especially because the cost of production is less than other methods, and the part build time is minimal. In the latest incarnations, 3D color printing is also available. This means that a part can be printed to represent the colors of the finished product, to show label concepts or requirements, or to indicate the results of stress analysis or other failure mode effects (FME) analysis.
In the near future, rapid prototyping technology will become more widespread and pervade even to the home. For now though, for timely and expert delivery, the use of a service bureau is the best way for most innovative companies, individuals and organizations.
