AbstractRapid prototyping (PR) techniques are fabrication methods used to quickly manufacture the shape of a design in order to analyze, correct and improve products using three-dimensional computer aided software (3D-CAD) data. Stereolithography (SLA), which is considered the first rapid prototyping method, was introduced by 3D Systems of Valencia, CA, USA, in about 1986. Since then, rapid prototyping has become one of the most important design tools in different engineering disciplines. [...]
