„Rapid Prototyping“ is a term that is loosely interpreted as quick prototype construction, but its roots lie in additive manufacturing to use 3D printers for the construction of much more than representative product models.
In this workshop, we present the many methods that rapid prototyping encompasses and define what potential and limitations 3D printing has in practice. Afterwards, a list of the most common established industrial use 3D printers is presented, explaining their functionality and types of products they can produce.
Throughout the semester, independent projects can be built in the campus rapid prototyping lab with the use of large format 3D printers, soldering irons, lathes, milling machines, welders and much more.
