About the Project

Over the next few months I will be studying rapid prototyping. I will be defining rapid prototyping as a group of technologies that enable one to quickly and easily manufacture physical objects from 3-Dimensional Computer Aided Design (CAD) data.

I currently have two main goals: one is to learn about the available technologies and compare them based on parameters like cost, accuracy, quality, speed, etc. The second is to experiment with this technology in order to understand it from a technical standpoint.

I will also discuss this technology from a conceptual point of view, hopefully shedding light on its implications in design, manufacturing, education, and generally speaking, the world.

My progress will be posted on this blog several times a week. I am open to all commentary / discussion / feedback. I can be reached any time at kylestetz@gmail.com.
