3-D printers, RAPID prototyping, THREE-dimensional printing, and SINTERING
The article discusses how three-dimensional (3D) printers benefit ZARE SrL, a provider of rapid prototyping services and a variety of additive manufacturing technologies. It explains how the company started creating only large monolithic prototypes using metal sintering but eventually expanded its capabilities by having Fortus 3D production system made by Startasys Ltd.
Presents a list of facts relating to the prototyping technique known as stereolithography. Increase in use of selective laser sintering; View of stereolithography enthusiasts who say that homeowners may someday construct their own kitchenware; Comments on stereolithography from Ron Barranco of stereolithography.com.
