General Information

Compulsory for: MD4
Language of instruction: The course will be given in English


The aim for this course is to give the basic insights into the use of advanced computer aided tools for rapid prototyping. A physical form of a model is converted to a computerized model and after some matchings a nearly exact copy of the former model could be outprinted. Rapid Prototyping is created from a computerized product model to a physical object.
