Abstract
Rapid prototyping technologies (RP) enable solid models to be obtained from designs generated using CAD applications. Their increasing popularity in industry is due to the reductions in cost and time associated with the use of these models when verifying product development stages and improvements in end quality. However, these technologies can also be applied to enhance students¿ active learning in the teaching of multiple subjects connected with product development. Students can bring their designs to fruition and check any decisions taken in an economically acceptable way. This work shows how RP technologies can be exploited for teaching, using the full development of a gear pump. The work has been carried out with educational aims in the ¿Product Development Laboratory¿ of Madrid Polytechnic University (U.P.M.), for the subject ¿Design and Manufacturing with Polymers¿.
