parts, and (3) the application of RP to mold building. Research on layered fabrication now extends to artificial bone, such as biological prostheses, microparts, and high-performance metal parts and molds. Such studies provide numerous approaches to fabrication that cannot be found in conventional methods. We thank the authors for contributing their intriguing papers to this special issue on rapid prototyping.
