This paper discusses the methods forgetting proper geometric coordinates of a sampleobject that has to be rapid prototyped. Thecoordinates of the objects is obtained by usingRadial Basis Function (RBF). The training is donewith many sample objects. It is expected to haveminimum distance traveled by the Rapidprototyping machine when the software follows thegeometric coordinates produced by the RBF.
Key words: Rapid Prototyping, Artificial Neural Network, Radial Basis Function.
INTRODUCTIONRapid prototyping (RP) refers to a variety of specialized equipment, software and materialscapable of using 3D computer aided design(CAD)
data input to directly fabricategeometrically complex objects. RP technologieshave emerged as a key element of time with their ability to shorten the product design anddevelopment process. This highly innovativeand cost efficient technology has foundapplications in automotive, aerospace andmedical equipment manufacturing, replacing thecommonly used slower and less accurate manualmethods of fabricating prototypes. Withadvances in established technologies, materialsand the introduction of new methods, selectingthe right RP machine has become much moredifficult and is one of the most importantdecisions to be made when employing any RPtechnology. This is vital in minimizing builttime, cost and achieving optimal accuracy. Whenmaking this decision, the designers and RPmachine operators should consider a number of different processes and specific constraints. Thismay be a difficult and time consuming task.The RP material flows through anorifice and comes out in the form of drops. Thesize of the drop is depending upon the speed of the wire comes out and solidification of material.For example, 1 mm size of drop is placed in 1mm size cube cavity to get the same size of cubeafter solidification in fraction of seconds. Thesides of the cube should be flat in all respects. Toachieve this focus has been made on a methodwhich can inform that how to make the abovethings with critical path method (CPM). Someproducts have been chosen with their applications, particularly in medical area. Byconsidering all the parameters in developing anykind of object is being able to produce in shorter time without any difficulty.2.
