Description: Rapid Prototyping (RP) is widely used as a tool to create cosmetic parts and non-working models in disciplines from Industrial Design to Engineering. With the maturity of RP, there is an impetus to further use this technology in Manufacturing. One use is exposing fabrication problems not readily observed either on-screen or in print. Another use for RP is to provide functional parts for assemblies before permanent tooling is made. This allows problems in the field to be quickly addressed providing faster response time and greater customer satisfaction. There is a need to better understand the tolerance capabilities of RP. The experimental focus is on Rochester Institute of Technologys (RIT) experience using Z-Corporations Spectrum Z510 RP system in the Center for Product Innovation and Commercialization (CPIC). The process capabilities of this system, using statistical process control charts, will lead to better understanding of part accuracy. Typical problems experienced and the techniques used to overcome these problems will be addressed. Issues such as costs, feasibility of use, and benefits within the academic environment and industrial outreach will be explored.
