Welcome to my first in-depth look at a subject. In this case it is about prototyping, from virtual, through rapid, to physical. There will be a number of editorials, some contributed white papers, opinions and other things related to the subject that will appear over the next few weeks. This article will be updated to become a sort of index for them, so you may want to bookmark this and check back for new content every now and then.
There is still chance if you are a user to send me an opinion or experiences you have had with prototyping.
