Rapid Prototyping Technology
Rapid prototyping, an emerging technology that is revolutionizing product
development, converts any three-dimensional design concept directly into a
real-world three-dimensional object. The savings in cost are of an order of
magnitude, and product development cycles are reduced from months to days or
even hours. Package and industrial designers and others in the automotive,
aerospace, medical devices, marine, consumer products, sports equipment and
virtually any industry that produces tangible items can adopt it.
Rapid prototyping industry revenues doubled from 1996 to 1997 to $600
million and are projected to reach $1 billion by 2000.
John Duffy, Equity Analyst, Fahnestock & Company, Inc., a middle market
