  • The next step in rapid prototyping
    Stronger materials and new build techniques are changing the way companies use rapid prototypes. Engineers at Airbus quickly generate models for wind-tunnel tests. They use a System 7000 to produce accurate parts that assemble into nearly complete subsystems, such as the landing gear. The front-end
  • Selecting a Rapid-Service Bureau
    soup. You have an idea -- and it's your "baby. " But of the hundreds of rapid-prototyping (RP) firms that will be vying to make the prototype of your baby, how do you know which to trust? The notion of form following function is only as good as the appropriateness of the RP process and material
  • Rapid Prototyping Accelerates The Design Process
    Engineers need to adopt new habits to make the most of rapid prototyping. Rapid prototyping has been a tool in the designer's arsenal for over a decade now, and the technologies behind it have improved greatly. The main impact of these technologies, however, has been to replace traditional modeling
  • Best practices for Using Rapid Prototypes
    and other advantages of rapid prototyping have been well reported. What's not well known is exactly what designers should do with RP parts. After picking it up and showing it to other designers, what comes next? Here's what a few RP pioneers had to say. "First of all,
  • Medical Device Link . An Introduction to Rapid Prototyping
    n January 1988, the first rapid prototyping system was installed at Baxter Healthcare for use in the development of medical devices. Now, eight years later, approximately 1500 systems have been installed worldwide, and an entire new industry has arisen to provide rapid prototyping services
  • Rapid-prototyping resin good enough for wind-tunnel tests
    A heavily filled composite stereo-lithography (SL) resin from DSM Somos, Elgin, Ill., let the Italian rapid-prototyping service bureau Provel s.r.l. test a scaled prototype of the M346 trainer aircraft in a wind tunnel. A scale model of the Alenia Aermacchi M-346 trainer was built in several
  • Right the First Time
    When a customer says, "I need it yesterday," they can only be joking, or can they? One Friday morning at Quigley Design a customer called asking for a rapid prototype to be delivered in a few days. The customer wanted to assemble the prototype, including the printed circuit and other components
  • Software Review: Rapid Prototypes for Speedy Race Cars
    are no different from many engineering endeavors in that designs often require several changes before approval. So our shop makes lots of prototypes to test on cars for form and fit. About five years ago, to speed the prototyping phase, we started using direct-digital-manufacturing (DDM) technology called
