Description

The 1990s have seen the birth of a new industry that will be a boon to the manufacturing world. Collectively the technologies have been called either rapid modeling or desktop manufacturing. All of them are geared to producing a model or a prototype in a very condensed timeframe compared to conventional technology. They all enable manufacturers to get to the marketplace with products sooner and at a reduced cost.
