The method of creating a moving mechanism can only be done using a process called additive prototyping. This process happens to be the specialty of Invent-A-Part, Inc. Rapid prototyping involves the use of 3D printers that build precision parts by manipulating using various types of plastics, using an additive method which builds layer by layer in succession. By means of Computer-aided design (CAD), Invent-A-Part caters to the imagination and creativity of anyone and everyone. The Curiosity Award was created from the ground up, all in one piece. The final result of a functioning moving part is something that can only be achieved by the rapid prototyping process described above, by Invent-A-Part.
Invent-A-Part has also revealed a new 3D printer for home, school and work on Kickstarter ( http://www.kickstarter.com/
Located in Springville, Utah, Invent-A-Part was established in 2009 by Michael Lundwall, and continues to grow and expand to new customers who have amazing and creative designs. By using the straightforward website www.inventapart.com, any designer can upload an STL (STereoLithography)
