Prototypes, Engineering -- Design and construction, Computer-aided design -- Usage, and Industrial design -- Methods
Conventional prototyping techniques still have advantages over the computer-aided design (CAD) -based rapid prototyping methods. Conventional methods are usually more accurate than rapid prototyping techniques and can be used to make bigger parts. Most companies employ a combination of both techniques to build prototypes in-house or through external sources. Rapid prototyping takes many forms such as selective laser sintering, fused deposition modeling, laminated object manufacturing and stereolithography.
