This paper discusses the current status of layer-based manufacturing Rapid Prototyping (RP) technology and how it is currently being implemented as a tool for product development (PD). A discussion on RP for PD is given, focusing on the limitations of existing technology. Future trends for RP development are then discussed with further consideration for software issues in future applications and how the technology is being accepted worldwide. © 2005 Taylor & Francis Group.
