Rapid Proto Typing (RPT) Lab
Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or "additive layer manufacturing" technology.
This is a fast-emerging technology which is finding its way into manufacturing addressing various industries. In the Rapid Prototyping (RPT) Lab the students are though how to design and manufacture using the RPT Machine.
