RAPID PROTOTYPE ENGINEERING COURSE

1. What are Direct Rapid Tooling and Indirect Rapid Tooling? Explain each concept with
one example each? (Hint: You can use graphics - photographs)

Rapid Tooling (RT) describes a process that is the result of combining Rapid Prototyping
techniques with conventional tooling practices to produce a mold quickly or parts of a functional
model from CAD data in less time and at a lower cost relative to traditional machining methods.

1. Indirect or Pattern-based Tooling.

This is the Use of a rapid prototype pattern to manufacture a tool in a secondary operation. It
approaches use master patterns to produce a mold or die, also known as Pattern-Based Tooling,
Any rapid prototyping process can yield patterns for indirect tooling.

Procedure of indirect rapid tooling.

Pictorial representation of indirect rapid tooling.
EXAMPLE.
An example of this technique is ‘rtv’, or room temperature vulcanized rubber molding.
'Rtv' tooling, is used for gravity casting or low-pressure molding of thermoset plastics, it
involves the use of 'rtv' silicone materials to produce the molds.

2. Direct Tooling, where the additive process builds the actual molds.

Direct approaches to rapid tooling do not require the production of a patter...
