Rapid Prototyping Information and CNC Prototyping Information Just Released on Website

Rapid Prototyping information has just been added to a new CNC Prototyping section on Ivan’s CNC Community Website.
Feb. 29, 2008 - PRLog -- Rapid Prototyping has become very popular in the past few years, especially its connection to CNC. Thus, Ivan Irons has just added a new section on Rapid Prototyping to his CNC Information website. This Prototyping section brings the CNC users everywhere into the latest cutting edge technology on Rapid Prototyping by providing the latest and greatest rapid prototyping information. This information can be found on Ivan’s CNC Community website and is free to the public to access at: http://www.cncinformation.com/rapid-prototyping-prototyping-cnc-prototype/.

Ivan add’s his own simplified definition of Rapid Prototyping on this webpage at http://www.cncinformation.com/rapid-prototyping-prototyping-cnc-prototype/ saying:

“Rapid prototyping takes virtual designs from computer-aided design (CAD) or animation modeling software, transforms them into thin, virtual, horizontal cross-sections and then creates each cross-section in physical space, one after the next until the model is finished. It is a WYSIWYG process where the virtual model and the physical model correspond almost identically.
With additive fabrication, the machine reads in data from a CAD drawing and lays down successive layers of liquid, powder, or sheet material, and in this way builds up the model from a series of cross sections. These layers, which correspond to the virtual cross section from the CAD model, are joined together or fused automatically to create the final shape. The primary advantage to additive fabrication is its ability to create almost any shape or geometric feature.
The standard data interface between CAD software and the machines is the STL file format. An STL file approximates the shape of a part or assembly using triangular facets. Tiny facets produce a higher quality surface. “
There are also a multitude of articles that go in-depth into Rapid Prototyping and these articles can be found at: http://www.cncinformation.com/rapid-prototyping-prototypi....
