Benefits:
-Quick Process
-Easy to check
Quality control
-If mass produced
then inexpensive
(Economies of scale)
Problems:
-High set up cost
- Maintenece
- Only plastic process

- E.G-Mixers, Irons, Kettles
Existing Products:
-Pipes
-Cable Cases
Identifying Features:
-Same cross section
throughout
-Good smooth finish
Materials:
-Polystyrene
-Nylon
-Polypropylene
-Polythene
Problems:
-High set up cost
-Maintenance
Benefits:
-Quality control
-Economies of scale
-Quick process to do
Identifying Features:

-life span
-environment
-Imediate environment
-wider area
-global issues
-Primary function
-Secondary function
-cost
-competition
-economys of scale
-features/performance
-warenty
Materials:
Rapid prototyping
Fused deposition modeling (FDM)
- sometimes referred to as 3D printing
- cheapest rapid prototyping method
- ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene astyrene), PC (polycarbonate), PLA (polylactic acid)
- slower than other RP methods
- produce test table prototypes and end use parts
