A new computer-based rapid prototyping (RP) procedure known as stereolithography can aid physicians in planning surgery or prosthetic aids by generating 3D anatomical models. Computer models can be compiled from successive 2D computed tomoggraphy (CT) scans of the body part being treated. The 3D data sets generated from CT scans are then converted into a format appropriate for use in stereolithography equipment. A Belgian software firm, Materialise, developed the software necessary to produce the models. RP can be used to design implants and prosthetics accurate to within .0003 inches. Surgeons can also employ the plastic models to better visualize how a surgical procedure will be conducted with minimum damage to surrounding tissue. Medical instruments, probes and devices can also be developed with RP techniques.

It is difficult to describe digital prototyping. The technology was developed to eliminate the need for expensive physical prototypes of products and now encompasses the total design and development process. Some implementations include mechanical analysis and virtual reality technologies. Digital prototyping reduces the costs of product development through such capabilities as interference checking, analysis and testing performed prior to manufacture. Electronic prototypes are frequently superior to physical models, especially because they allow parts of the product to be tested and evaluated during the development process, instead of at the end of it. Computer-based simulations can demonstrate how the product will perform in various environments.
