Abstract

As Rapid Prototyping (RP) has evolved to become Additive Manufacture (AM) it has become possible to exploit the effects of the layer-based approach to fabrication so that parts can become easier to build and with greater functionality. Initially parts made in a manner that could not be manufactured further using conventional processes were considered merely as a novelty to RP machine users rather than of any wider benefit. With improvements in the technology and increasing demand for more complex geometry products, AM is coming into its own. As a result, we are now able to manufacture parts that have interlocking features, overlapping and mechanistic properties as well as us not having to worry about constraints like draft angles and overhanging features.
