The materials which can currently be processed using commercially available rapid prototyping techniques have limited mechanical characteristics. Describes research into two processes which offer metal part capabilities, namely selective laser sintering and laser generating. Pays particular attention to the selection of suitable materials. Discusses the application of these techniques to the manufacture of metal tools.
