Rapid Prototyping

On the 2nd of September at three speakers will share their visions on Rapid Prototyping.

Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data. The first methods for rapid prototyping became available in the late 1980s and were used to produce models and prototype parts.

Today, they are used for a wide range of applications and are used to manufacture production-quality parts in relatively small numbers if desired without the typical unfavourable short-run economics.
