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.
Rapid protoyping is basically three-dimensional printing - models are created as a series of layers, laid down one-by-one. There are a variety of techniques available, including using resin and sheets [...]

REAL estate development, ARCHITECTURAL designs, and COLLEGE graduates
The article presents diverse real estate development designs created by 2006 British architecture graduates. By using rapid prototyping techniques, University College student Tobias Klein created the Chapel of Our Lady de Regla, an inverted chapel slotted into an existing courtyard to meet the need for space to bury the dead. Westminster University graduate Gillian Lambert designed a studio house for the weather-obsessed architect. Edinburgh University graduate David Eland developed a design for a pharmaceutical research facility.
