The Rapid Prototyping Report in 1992 defined RP as

The Fabrication of a physical, three dimensional part of arbitrary shape
directly from a numerical description (typically a CAD model) by a quick,
highly automated and totally flexible process.

Does this definition define what you do with rapid prototyping? Should it
be expanded and if so how would you change it?


Opinions, suggestions, and other controversial matter VOID where prohibited.
