THREE-dimensional printing, RAPID prototyping, ARCHITECTURE, and CONSTRUCTION industry
The article offers information on 3D printing, also referred to as rapid prototyping or digital fabrication, and its use in the architecture and construction industry. Nick Grace, business development manager of the Royal College of Arts' Rapidform RCA unit, describes the technology as the manufacture of the physical from the digital. Grace asserts that digital fabrication will give the industry an opportunity to completely change the way the industry source their materials. INSET: 3D-PRINTING CASE STUDY- LEADENHALL TOWER STEELWORK.
Focuses on the use of rapid prototyping in building design. Conversion of computer files into genuine production articles; Creation of complex form from a series of parallel slices; Production of three-dimensional image. INSETS: The model methods;The practice model.

NEW product development, RAPID prototyping, TELECOMMUNICATION systems, and BROADCASTING industry
The article reports developments related to broadcasting technology in Europe. PIayBox IP and ASI PlayBox Technology's DVB Series comprises a group of new products that addresses the needs of telecom's operations and satellite uplink centers for efficient high quality services for re-broadcast and NVoD clients. Norway's PSB NRK has selected automation provider Abit to supply a file-based workflow and streaming solution.
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.

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.
RAPID prototyping, ARCHITECTURE, VIRTUAL reality, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article discusses role of digital tools and performance analysis systems along with other trends in shaping designs for architecture. Topics discussed include comments from Matthew Webster of British Land, on impact of wellbeing, architectural advantages of virtual reality and impact of three dimensional (3D)-printing and digital fabrication on the industry.
