"Rapid prototyping" refers to the various additive manufacturing methods used for rapid production of specimen components – in fact, this is where additive manufacturing originated. Rapid tooling is another technology that speeds up product manufacturing. It takes advantage of additive manufacturing techniques to produce tools. This topic shows how you can benefit from rapid manufacturing methods.
