makes a physical 3D prototype. A model of the product is made on the computer and sliced' into many thin layers. Each slice is cut into resin by a laser, and assembled into a complete prototype.
A sheet of heated polystyrene has a mould raised into it. The air is then sucked out, and the plastic cooled, and the mould removed.
A “hopper” has granules of plastic heated inside it, and is pushed towards the steel mould by an Archimedean screw. A hydraulic ram then forces the plastic into a pressurised mould. The mould is then cooled and the object is released.
A machine similar to the injection moulding one has plastic heated inside. The mould is then wrapped around the end of the tube produced, and compressed air is forced in, expanding the plastic into the mould.
A line is marked along the plastic, then the plastic is heated on both sides until soft. A jig is then used to bend the plastic.
