The Centre for Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (CRPM) at Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) specializes in Additive Manufacturing (AM), better known as 3D printing. The CRPM was established 1997 as a centre for commercial work as well as research using Rapid Prototyping, Rapid Manufacturing, Rapid Tooling and Medical Product Development technologies.
The AM technologies open the possibility to go directly from Computer-Aided Design (CAD) to a physical prototype/model. These prototypes are used by product/industrial designers for form and function test as well as final prototypes before tooling commences. The CRPM can manufacture prototypes in plastic, metal and sand.
