Abstract : Laser initiated photopolymerization opened the doors for the rapid prototyping revolution. Driven by computer control, the polymerization process can create plastic models which conform accurately to a programmed design in three dimensions. The control programs may be derived from various sources including CAD files, CT scans or other tomographic medical imaging sources such as MRI in a process called 'stereolithography'. Models formed by stereolithography conform concisely to a design pattern in all dimensions, and the process has shortened the time required for implementation from months to days in industries ranging from automotive and glass to medical devices.
