Product description


This is the most comprehensive and relevant textbook in the field of 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing. Whenever I teach subjects related to rapid product development I use this book as a reference. My students appreciate the easy way the information is introduced very much. This is an excellent book for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. --Paulo Jorge Bártolo, Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, Portugal

This book has now become a standard textbook all over the world. It's a 'must-have' for students and practitioners in this exciting area. --Bopaya Bidanda, University of Pittsburgh, USA

This could be a very intriguing book for manufacturing engineers, designers, artists, model makers, and hobbyists, since so many creative avenues could be explored using this technology. This book provides the knowledge required to understand AM, and all the background necessary to make 3D printed objects. --IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine

From the Inside Flap

3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM) has revolutionized how prototypes are made and small batch manufacturing carried out. With additive manufacturing, the strategies used to produce a part change a number of important considerations and limitations previously faced by tool designers and engineers.

This textbook is the fourth edition of Rapid Prototyping: Principles and Applications. It covers the key AM processes, the available models and specifications, and their principles, materials, advantages and disadvantages. Examples of application areas in design, planning, manufacturing, biomedical engineering, entertainment, weaponry, art and architecture are also given. The book includes several related problems for the reader to test his or her understanding of the topics. The included CD-ROM presents animated illustrations of the working principles of today's key AM processes.
