What is Rapid Prototyping?

In'Tech Industies

Rapid prototyping (RP) is a group of techniques that are used to produce scale models of a product using 3D printing technology and computer-aided design (CAD) data. Rapid prototyping first emerged in the scene in the late 1980s with the introduction of a technology called stereolithography, which is based on hardening of liquid plastic by exposing it to ultraviolet laser. Rapid prototyping is an additive manufacturing technology. Quick way of prototyping.
