This paper describes the current types and applications of rapid prototyping (RP) systems. The capabilities of various types of RP systems are outlined, as are the benefits these systems offer when compared to traditional manufacturing methods, case studies are presented to show how some companies have reduced development costs and time-to-market by implementing RP technology. Finally, it outlines a plan for implementation of a RP system in a Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum.
