3D Printing and Additive production (AM) has revolutionised how prototypes are made and small batch production performed. With additive production, the ideas used to provide a component switch a few vital concerns and boundaries formerly confronted by means of device designers and engineers.

This textbook is the fourth version of Rapid Prototyping: ideas and Applications. It covers the most important AM approaches, the to be had versions and necessities, and their rules, fabrics, merits and drawbacks. Examples of software parts in layout, making plans, production, biomedical engineering, leisure, weaponry, artwork and structure also are given. The publication comprises numerous similar difficulties for the reader to check his or her knowing of the subjects. This variation comes with a better half media pack that provides lively illustrations of the operating ideas of modern-day key AM processes.
