I update this about once a year and put it back out to the list so here it
is again..............

Contact the Rapid Prototyping Association (RPA) of SME, phone (313) 271-1500,
fax (313) 271-2861, and ask for Nancy Gurney, RPA/SME association manager.
will send you a Bibliography of Rapid Prototyping Resources, which lists
articles, technical papers, etc., that were published from 1990 through 1993.
A new version (with abstracts) will be available in early '95. Nancy can tell
you when. At one time, it was available free of charge to RPA/SME members

Another RP/SFF book is entitled "Solid Freeform Manufacturing - Advanced Rapid
Manufacturing," edited by Detlef Kochan, University of Dresden (Germany),
published by Elsevier Science Publishers (The Netherlands) 1993, This book is
volume 19 in a series on Manufacturing Research and Technology. The address
for this publication is

Always good info in research dissertations. Contact your local library for
an interlibrary loan if possible. Great example is James Christian Nelson,

Process and an Empirical Sintering Model", 1993 You can order a copy from
UMI (1-800-521-3042) which is print of a microfilm master.
