Geometric path planning in rapid prototyping
Rapid prototyping encompasses a family of recently developed technologies that are concerned with the automatic generation of 3D prototype parts from computerized geometric descriptions. The prototype parts are expected to be dimensionally accurate, but need not possess the strength, rigidity, surface finish or other physical properties of the final product.
