During a presentation at a local seminar, I had listed a few of the
challenges ahead of all involved in RP as under :

R/P Equipment Manufacturers : Speed, Accuracy, Finish, Materials
Tooling Material Vendors (Epoxy, Rubber) : Sustain Production conditions
for longer runs
Prototype Material Vendors (PU etc.) : Match variety of production
material properties
Machine Tool Manufacturers : Speed, Flexibility. (Considering High Speed
Machining as an alternative to RP)
Service Bureaus : Wider Range of Services
Customers : Innovate, Experiment, Invest in Design/R&D
Common for all : Take CALCULATED RISKS.

I am sure you all will have many more to add....

Let's go for it !!!

With Best Regards from Shreyas J Bakshi
