An important factor in the design cycle of polymer moulded components is the ability to produce representative components for test. Rapid modelling and tooling has become an essential part of this programme, particularly since it enables significant design time compression. The computer modelled rapid prototype has provided design confidence by allowing it to be fitted, tested for functionality and analysed. Possibly more important, rapid tooling is established by using the models as patterns; this allows the production of a prototype in the correct shape and material. Rapid tooling methods for injection moulding enable manufacture in days rather than months.
