Abstract

Material addition in very thins layers of  the size and shape of a product makes possible to obtain the required product.  This procedure was initially called rapid prototyping as it was used by designers to obtain prototype models of new designs like mufflers used in compressors of plastic materials. The requirement of  Akella Systems’  Sreyas Mobile Air Conditioner, SMAC wanted a air diverter system parts prototypes to be built. A Rapid prototyping machine was used to build the 3D model’s of diverter strip, holding rail and frame are made. These prototypes of air diverters were used in the Air conditioner and tested for performance and after validation production molds where designed to obtain regular plastic parts for manufacturing. In this report different steps of the use of 3D printing are listed and the development of manufactured parts are shown in use. This work is an industry institute combined effort in developing technology to introduce new products.
