Rapid prototyping technology in model making, also known as rapid prototyping or solid free form manufacturing, is a method of making basic parts layer by layer with materials. It is a product design and development technology developed by integrating new technologies such as CAD, numerical control technology, precision machinery, laser technology and material science and engineering.
Rapid prototyping in Shandong Province is a discrete and stacking processing technology, whose goal is to quickly transform the computer 3D CAD model into a 3D solid model composed of concrete materials. The basic process of Rapid prototyping is to process the three-dimensional data (3DModel) of Computer-aided design products by layers and discrete processing by computer, and then process the original three-dimensional data surface two-dimensional plane data according to the specific molding method, and process the molding materials layer by layer, point by point, surface by surface, and stack them for molding.
Its characteristics are as follows:
1. It has changed the traditional manufacturing method of models and directly driven by CAD models to achieve a high degree of integration between design and manufacturing, fully reflecting the integrated concept of design evaluation and manufacturing. Its intuitive and easy to modify nature provides an excellent design environment for product design.
2. It can manufacture three-dimensional solid models of any complex shape, fully reflecting design details, improving dimensional and shape accuracy, and eliminating the need for further processing of parts.
3. The forming process does not require the investment of tooling and molds, which not only saves costs but also shortens the production cycle.
4. The rapidity of the entire molding process is suitable for the fierce modern product market.
Rapid prototyping technology is the processing of a complex three-dimensional processing of a solid body into a series of layers, which greatly reduces the processing difficulty, opens up a way to rapidly manufacture various parts without any tools, and provides a new manufacturing method for models or parts that cannot or are difficult to manufacture with conventional methods.
