What are some common forms of rapid prototyping?

Rapid prototyping is the speedy creation of a full-scale model. The word prototype comes from the Latin words proto (original) and typus (model). It is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.

Rapid prototyping consists of methods used to create a working model of a new system, item or product quickly. This is usually done from 3D images produced with CAD software and uses a 3D printer to rapidly make the components. 3d printing in chennai bangalore kolkata lucknow kerala karnataka andhra pradesh india

The most common forms of rapid prototyping are:

1. Laser stereolithography process(SLA) - when the object is grown in the fluidal photopolymer. The object gets dense under the influence of the ultraviolet laser. - investment casting

2. SLS or Selective Laser Sintering. With this technology models are created in SLS printers. It has a lot in common with SLA, but raw material. It is not a fluidal photopolymer but the powder thermoplastic material. How it works: the powder gets heat to the high, close to melting temperature, levels off and, affected by the laser, the necessary contour is created on it. In the place where the beam touches the powder elements mold and sinter.

3. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3de printing services. The technology is patented by the company vexmatech.
