What is difference between 3D printing and Rapid Prototyping

Postby 3dtech » Sat Oct 07, 2017 12:21 am

3D printing in vapi gujarat is a manufacturing process like milling and turning. Its also known as additive manufacturing because you are adding successive layers of material instead of to remove material like milling and turning. Just be aware that is not the same process for create a 3D model for 3D printing than for milling or turning.

Rapid prototyping is a method to quickly create a scale model of a part or finished product, using a computer-aided design (CAD) software. Manufacturing of the part is mainly done with 3D printing services in delhi ncr gurgaon india or additive layer manufacturing technology


3D printing is one of the ways for rapid prototyping. In the current, new 3D printing technology (SLA, SLS and FDM ect) and traditional CNC machine center(CNC metal/plastic) is as the 2 ways for finishing rapid prototyping process.

3D printing allows building solid-state models of different shapes and sizes, using any material you like. Where does that get us? Let’s see, what we can 3D-print and where it is applicable.

3d printing medical breakthrough body parts or organs → healthcare industry, medical research, education;

3d printed architectural models, maquettes → construction industry, exterior and interior design;

Automotive components → motor-vehicle construction and engineering;

Virtually any consumer, household and fashion goods.
