Hi RP world,

I'm doing here some research in the field of metal sheet lamination.
However, as I recognized, I'm the only one who is doing Rapid Prototyping.
Most of the students don't know what is Stereolithography, Selective Laser
Sintering, Fused Deposition Manufacturing, Laminated Object Manufacturing,
Solid Ground Curing, etc. Even the LOM-Center near here is unknown, which
is surprising, because the students belong usually to the big companies
like Toyota Motor, Hino Motors (busses), Nippon Denso (car parts) or Toyoda
Machine Works.
Also, standard literature is not available in the library.
I will give a basic introduction in this field and for this it would be
good if someone, especially manufactures can send me some material such as
information brochures, videos, sample parts, etc.

Any help will be appreciated.

Best regards Thomas Himmer
