91. The materials of rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping are used by many fields. It brings a big change to our life. So many people want to know it now. Some people are interested in the materials of rapid prototyping.

Different rapid prototyping systems make use of a variety of materials to create different three dimensional objects. A common material used is prototyping wax. This material is usually ideal when engineers and designers require small quantities of casting parts to create intricate patterns without the use of tooling.

Prototyping wax can also be used together with other types of plastic mould materials in order to make the resulting prototype work better with different casting methods that make use of metals as well as non-metals. Combining prototyping wax with other materials to create the models will also be ideal for low-temperature furnaces and vacuum plaster casting methods.

Aside from prototyping waxes, there are also other materials being used for a number of plastic mould processes. One such material is thermoplastics. If product engineers are looking forward in creating durable prototype parts that might require aggressive functional testing, thermoplastics can be the ideal material to use for rapid prototyping. Thermoplastic materials have effective heat and chemical resisting properties that make them the best choice for models that undergo aggressive product testing procedures.

Certainly, there are many other materials, if you want to know, you can contact us.
