Rapid prototyping

The speed of the new technologies of industrial production

Rapid prototyping is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The first techniques for rapid prototyping became available in the late 1980s and were used to produce models and prototype parts. Today, they are used for a much wider range of applications and are even used to manufacture production-quality parts in relatively small numbers. Some sculptors use the technology to produce complex shapes for fine arts exhibitions.

Objects produced by rapid prototype process.

Patrick Jouin designed some solid stereolitography furniture a while ago. Stereolitography is a rapid prototyping technique and gaining popularity day by day.
