What is the difference between 3D printing and Rapid Prototyping?
Dec 12, 2018

Rapid Prototyping - The process of creating parts quickly from CAD data is called Rapid Prototyping (RPT). RPT is an integral part of product development and product testing. Prototypes are required for validation, communication, fitment check and final testing before launching and moving ahead for mass production.

Different manufacturing techniques are used to create prototypes based on quantity, quality, material required, cost and purpose. Some of the techniques are:

  1. 3D Printing- FFF, SLS, SLA and DMLS (Different 3D Printing technologies)

  2. CNC Machining - Turning and milling

  3. Vacuum casting

So basically 3D Printing is one of the many manufacturing techniques that helps us to create prototypes quickly.
