Excellent book with comprehensive review on RP systems Feb 27, 2000
This book traces the development of Rapid Prototyping Technology and its applications in the industry. Fundamentals such as the STL file format and the working principle behind the various systems are clearly explained and illustrated. This makes it suitable for use as a reference text for a course in RP. In addition, future development for these systems are discussed, making it also very useful those who are already familiar with the technology. Last but not least, the book includes many informative case studies to help the reader understand how RP is actually being used in the industry. This will help the reader select the best system to use for his particular application.
Reasonably good text content with less details in the CD-ROM Aug 31, 1999
General coverage of all RP trends is good. Content in the CD-ROM is only informative. A Detailed coverage in CD-ROM would have been more useful. More details could be given on the resins/materials used in the different processes.
