RAPID prototyping, PROTOTYPES, ENGINEERING design, THREE-dimensional printing, ELECTRONIC noise, and BONE screws (Orthopedics)
The article discusses three dimensional (3D) printing prototype on using of iterate designs in the development stage, or to validate. Topics include research and development (R&D) facility with having capability to measure everything from cooling power to noise to electronics emissions; the R&D facility with designing of iteration capacity include two Raise3D Pro2 Plus 3D printers; and design engineers on building to first create and simulate a design using Ansys modeling software.

RAPID prototyping, MACHINE shops, PROTOTYPES, MANUFACTURING processes, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article discusses the author's insights on functional prototyping being carried by machine shops that adopt additive manufacturing (AM). He outlines the advantages of functional prototyping for machinists. The author believes that those machine shops making functional prototypes could find themselves displaced from the supply chain if their customers decide to leverage AM technology.
