Rapid Prototyping: Overview
Rapid Prototyping is the fast fabrication of an early version of a prototype. It is meant to serve as the physical conceptual design for a developing project, and the quick and easy nature of the design allows creators to change parts of it without much time overhead. Typically, rapid prototyping can be done very cheaply using materials that are either already owned or simple to procure, like cardboard, foam, MDF, and legos. The following page will reference different types of material categories that are used for rapid prototyping.
