Paper Title:
Present State & Perspectives of Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Technology
  Abstract

By integrating a number of different disciplines, rapid prototyping and manufacturing technology (RPM) is capable of forming parts with complicated structures and non-homogeneous materials. RPM techniques are mainly used as prototypes in such product invention process as stereo lithography, 3D printing, laminated object manufacturing and fused deposition modeling. So far, many new RPM techniques emerged out and have been already applied in such fields as rapid tooling/moulding, direct formed usable part, nano-/micro-RPM and biomanufacturing. The flexible digital manufacturing method will have a bright prospect.
