Rapid prototyping (RP) is commonly referred to as computer rapid prototyping. It integrates CAD technology, numerical control technology, material technology and other modern scientific and technological achievements to generate almost any complex parts without the use of moulds and tools.
The rapid prototyping machine adopts the principle of reduced dimension manufacturing, which decomposes the originally complex three-dimensional model into several two-dimensional graphics according to a certain layer thickness and then uses the stacking method to restore and manufacture the three-dimensional solid samples. Because the whole process does not need a mould, it is widely used in product development, functional testing, mould-free manufacturing and small-batch manufacturing. It is mainly used in the fields of automobile, aerospace, household appliances, electric tools, universities, mould manufacturing, toy manufacturing, hand version design, etc.
The benefits of rapid prototyping are evident in various industries, such as the automobile, aerospace, and household appliance sectors, where protomold injection molding techniques have revolutionized the product development and small-batch manufacturing processes. With the ability to achieve mold-free manufacturing, rapid prototyping has become an essential tool for protomold injection molding companies and manufacturers looking to streamline their production processes.
Rapid prototyping technology can provide design verification and function verification in the process of product development, and test the manufacturability and assembly of products. Through various conversion technologies, RP models can be quickly converted into various moulds, greatly shortening the cycle of product replacement. The rapid prototyping machine can provide accurate samples in time for sample viewing and ordering, supply inquiry, market publicity, etc., greatly improving the marketing efficiency of enterprises. Less than ten years after its appearance, rapid prototyping technology has achieved a considerable market and developed very rapidly. It has become a powerful means of modern industrial design, model, mould and parts manufacturing, and has been more and more widely used in light industry, automobile and motorcycle fields. In view of the particularity of rapid prototyping technology, it can directly produce special and complex parts and materialize CT scanning information. Therefore, rapid prototyping technology is gradually showing great advantages in the fields of aviation, aerospace and medical treatment.
