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. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or "Additive layer manufacturing" technology.
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. Airbus has adopted this method of manufacturing process ( Fuel nozzle assembly in the engine, Bracket for holding display monitor for passenger etc.) to save fuel cost and development time. Medical Industries also have adopted this manufacturing processes to manufacture human body parts. This process is also Environmental friendly, as it does not generate any scrap material during the manufacturing process.
After carrying out the scanning process and creating the 3D model or creating a 3D model from scratch, the students will be able to transfer the model to 3D printing software. After creating 'G-Code', the model can be printed in a 3D printer. Based on the requirements, the students will be able to generate the prototype in
