Choosing between the various rapid prototyping technologies can be difficult, and it has become even more challenging as the technologies have matured. Strengths and weaknesses are inherent in all processes, and rapid prototyping is no exception. To select the rapid prototyping method for a specific application requires a thorough understanding of the limitations as well as the strengths of each technology. The challenge is selecting the right process for the task. Without hands-on experience, many of these factors will be obscure. Even with a full understanding of these parameters, one will find that there are tradeoffs between the technologies that cloud the decision-making process. Author: Todd Grimm, T. A.
