Rapid Prototyping Technology

Mr. K. Vijay Kumar ,Department of Mechanical Engineering

Rapid Prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using 3-D computer aided design (CAD) data. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3-D printing or “additive layer manufacturing” technology. It is one of the earliest additive variants, and its mission was to reduce the lead time and cost of developing prototypes of new parts and devices. 3D printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) refers to processes used to create a three-dimensional object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object. Object can be of almost any shape or geometry and are produced using digital model data from a 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File (AMF).
