RAPID prototyping, JOB analysis, MANUFACTURING processes, NEW product development, INDUSTRIAL design, and MODELS & modelmaking
This article presents information related to car prototypes designed by 3T RPD. Rapid prototyping group 3T RPD has been working with designers at Taeno Product Development to prove the viability of selective laser sintering (SLS) for the production of shortrun automotive parts. The project began with designers from Taeno submitting sketches for a redesigned front end with separate front wings, to match the construction method used on the back of the Smart car. The front end of the actual car was also digitised and fed into SolidWorks CAD.
