Rapid Prototyping Specific Introduction

     Rapid prototyping technology, also known as rapid prototyping technology, (referred to as RP technology); English: RAPID PROTOTYPING (referred to as RP technology), or RAPID PROTOTYPING MANUFACTURING, referred to as RPM. In the automotive application industry called RP samples. RP technology is developed in the modern CAD / CAM technology, laser technology, computer numerical control technology, precision servo drive technology and new materials technology based on the integrated development. Different types of rapid prototyping system due to the use of different materials, forming principles and system characteristics are also different. However, the basic principles are the same, that is, "layered manufacturing, layer by layer stack", similar to the mathematical integration process. Imagine, the rapid prototyping system is like a "three-dimensional printer."Rapid Prototyping

     Superiority, it can directly accept the product design (CAD) data, without the need to prepare any mold, tool and tooling fixture, quickly create a new product samples, mold or model. Therefore, the promotion and application of RP technology can greatly shorten the development cycle of new products, reduce development costs and improve the quality of development. From the traditional "removal" to today's "growth law", from the mold to the manufacture of moldless manufacturing, which is RP technology on the manufacturing sector of the revolutionary significance. Features: RP technology will be an entity of complex three-dimensional processing discrete into a series of layers of processing, greatly reducing the processing difficulty, has the following characteristics:Rapid Prototyping

⑴ can create any complex shape of the three-dimensional entities; ⑶ CAD model directly driven to achieve a high degree of integration of design and manufacturing, its intuitive and easy to modify the product for the product; (3) the rapid development of the whole process, Perfect design provides an excellent design environment; ⑷ molding process without special fixtures, molds, knives, both to save the cost, but also shorten the production cycle. ⑸ high degree of integration of technology, both the inevitable development of modern science and technology products, but also for their comprehensive application, with a distinctive high-tech features. The above characteristics determine the RP technology is mainly suitable for new product development, quick single and small batch parts manufacturing, complex shape parts manufacturing, mold and model design and manufacturing, but also for difficult to manufacture materials, shape design inspection, assembly inspection And fast reverse engineering.Rapid Prototyping

    The formation of the process: the image of analogy: rapid prototyping system is equivalent to a "three-dimensional printer." It can be in the absence of any tools, molds and tooling fixtures in the case, quickly and directly to achieve a single piece of production. Depending on the complexity of the part, this process typically takes 1 to 7 days. In other words, RP technology is a fast and direct manufacturing of single parts of the technology.Rapid Prototyping
