The article focuses on the technological innovations in furniture designing. It presents information on Rapid Prototyping (RP), a computer controlled process for printing objects in three dimensional (3 D) images. It states that RP uses a range of techniques such as stereolithogrphy and selective laser sintering for printing. It discusses RP images beginning with a 3-D image, which are sliced into thousands of layers as thin as tissue paper, and then printed by especially designed pieces.
