Abstract

Rapid Prototyping is widely known as being able to fabricate 3D objects with complex geometries directly from accurate digital CAD data. Rapid prototyping can shorten the product development cycle and improve the design process by providing rapid and effective feedback to the designer. This paper presents the findings of an investigation into the accuracy, build strength and detail of the EnvisionTec PerFactoryTM Digital Light Processing (DLPTM) based system, applied to rapid manufactured parts. The multi-directional material properties of Rapid prototyping resins can be used by Finite Element analysis to predict the functional design parameters applied to rapid manufactured components.
The results will allow designers and manufacturing engineers to access the validity of the components and the range of applications for this new evolutionary system.
