What Is Rapid Prototyping

How does Rapid Prototyping Work?

Rapid prototyping is a technology that takes a three-dimensional computer model and builds a three dimensional part by building layers upon layer of material. Its speed and low cost allow design teams to confirm their new designs early and frequently in the process.

Step 1

Start with a 3 dimension computer model. Typically created in 3D CAD products like Solid Works, Rhino, Pro/E, Mechanical Desktop etc.

Step 2

From 3D CAD, an STL file is exported. Typically done as a "File Save As …". Xpress3D CAD Add-ins perform this step automatically.

Step 3

The STL file is then translated into hundreds (or even thousands) of cross sectional data.

Step 4

Starting with the bottom slice, the prototyping machine builds each slice upon the previous, until all the slices are built and the prototype is complete.
