Raymond and List:
Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling has certainly opened up many exciting
applications. My company (Rapid Tooling Technologies) just became the
second 3D Keltool licensee in the U.S. We just completed a job building some
Keltool inserts that will be used for making production chocolate candies.

RP and RT is affecting nearly every industry under the sun!
