Rapid Prototyping: Principles and Applications
Rapid prototyping is a faster, more cost-effective method for building prototypes from three-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD) drawings. Rapid Prototyping provides a fundamental overview of the general manufacturing process and presents the principles and applications of designing and fabricating parts in a format that makes learning easy. This user-friendly text features basic information on layered manufacturing processes, the essential vocabulary of nomenclature, numerous review exercises, case studies, a full section of rapid prototyping applications, helpful material for further study, applications to real-world problems, and more.
