Concept of Rapid Prototyping

  • Guolin Meng

The traditional manufacturing model concerns a single species in large quantities with long production cycles. With the progress of modern scientific technology, manufacturing model transfer to more species in small quantities with short production cycles becomes possible. How to satisfy the demands of the market quickly has become one of the important directions of modern manufacturing. With the development of computer, microelectronics, informatization, automation, new materials, and modern enterprise management technology, many new manufacturing techniques and models have been produced. Rapid prototyping (RP) technology, which was born in the 1960s, has made its progress under such kind of background.

The Development of RP Technology

Rapid prototyping technology is one kind of manufacturing methods of accumulating the materials layer by layer or point by point. The early thoughts of layered manufacturing first appeared in the nineteenth...
