72.About rapid prototyping

Everyone knows we live in the world where knowledge quickly enhances the quality of our life. Rapid prototyping is an example. Rapid prototyping is very popular in market.Thus it can be seen,it is very important.

Rapid prototyping machines are sometimes called 3D printers. The rapid prototyping process is based on the CAD that is deciphered as computer-aided design. The machine assisted by a computer uses 3D graphical model of the product to produce a real object. The whole process is being done with a laser that shapes the desirable features of a future physical object (model). As we have already mentioned, material used in the process of rapid prototyping modeling are different. Ceramic material, rapid prototyping wax, paper, plastic, metal, powders and so on and so force. There is no end to the list of materials used for rapid prototyping modeling.

The rapid prototyping is an additive technology. Layers of materials are combined in order to create a 3D solid model of the needed product. The process of rapid prototyping is divided into several steps listed below:

Step 1. Creation of the potential model by means of CAD.

Step 2. The converting of the created model into stereo lithography format (STL).

Step 3. Slicing of STL file into layers (0.01 mm to 0.07 mm) depending on client’s requirements.

Step 4. The actual creation of the real model. A machine uses the material you have chosen to create a proper model by means of layer-by-layer technique that has been already presented above.
