Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this research, is to develop a nano composite deposition system (NCDS) to fabricate three dimensional functional nano composite parts.

Design/methodology/approach

The NCDS is a hybrid system in which material removal process by mechanical micro machining and/or the deposition process is combined.

Findings

Hybrid RP technology showed higher precision than those made by casting or deposition process. Tensile strength of the hydroxyapatite‐acrylic composite was about four times higher than that of resin‐only specimen while MWCNT composite did not show much improvement.

Originality/value

The paper illustrates new approaches for rapid prototyping techniques with various materials and high precision.
