Rapid prototyping, a quick way of producing a 3D model from the printer, is becoming more and more important. This method is particularly useful for product designers as a means of detecting any weaknesses in operation or design flaws. Rapid prototyping is also well suited to architectural modelling because the result is very precise and through diverse modelling procedures allows different material to be used.
The architect Anton Markus Pasing used rapid prototyping in a very unconventional way: he created ‘Domestic parasite’ – a sculpture that we visualized and produced. The response was tremendous…
