RAPID prototyping, PRINTING, PLASTICS, PLASTIC powders, and ULTRAVIOLET radiation
The article focuses on how rapid prototyping in plastics is attained through 3-D printing. Rapid prototyping is performed by melting plastics powder using laser beam layer by layer while 3D printing involves fluid photopolymer material being injected as tiny droplets of pixels in layers similar to inkjet printing. The process involves very low temperatures and ultraviolet light is used to cure the material immediately after it is jetted.
