The aim of new techniques of rapid prototyping, tooling and manufacturing is to take a new product from the Computer Aided Design (CAD) stage into instant production of the prototype, or even the end use part. In this report the different methods available, the material choice, accuracy and model build size are described. An additional indexed section containing several hundred abstracts from the Rapra Polymer Library database gives useful references for further reading.As no tools are required to make these parts, it is possible to build highly complex shapes that would be either extremely difficult or ... 4.2.1 Drop-on-Demand Ink Jet Drop-on-Demand Ink Jet (DODI) printing is a combination of the FDM process and the SGC system. ... of 352 nozzles, which jet a bead of molten polymer ( typically a wax) onto the build platform, much in the same way as an ink jet printer .
