Process Analysis for Rapid Tooling Technology Based on Rapid Prototyping
This paper discussed the working principle, classification, modeling process and technology features for rapid tooling based on rapid prototyping and investigated into the difference between rapid tooling with traditional modeling manufacture. Several typical rapid tooling technologies are compared and summarized from mould period, fabrication cost and production cycle. Some key problems that rapid tooling industry will face with are analyzed. The application of the rapid tooling based on rapid prototyping is prospected.
