This paper is written based on some industrial practices. It presents some aspects about rapid prototyping which stays at the base of manufacturing design using CAD/CAE programs and its integration in industrial field. A big economical advantage is that products made by rapid prototyping express a low risk failure and the manufacturing process takes less time and lower costs than the conventional techniques. A new product design was produced by rapid prototyping techniques starting from a broken one. First, the mechanical characteristics of broken product were investigated by Finite Element Analysis (FEA). It provides a way of simulating the product design under working condition and an opportunity to understand failure modes. Therefore, problems in tooling would be minimized. After FEA simulation, a new material was chosen in order to increase the mechanical characteristics. The new product material improves all the mechanical characteristics. At the end of this paper, the case study is presented. Before that, new framework is proposed.
