The article focuses on the rapid prototyping technology used by service providers. It reveals the 3D printers of Z Corp. that spray glue to a bed of powdered plaster or starch to produces a plastic-like appearance. It presents the stereolithography apparatus (SLA) from 3D Systems Corp. which uses ultraviolet lasers to generate 3D images in liquid resin to form the model. It notes the laser-sintering machines of Eos GmbH and 3D Systems Corp. which combine powdered materials into solid objects.
