Fast prototyping in the manufacturing of complex armament parts

  • 1 Faculty of “Artillery, air defense and CIS” – National Military University “Vasil Levski”, Veliko Tarnovo, the Bulgarian Republic


Virtual prototypes or virtual 3D models of complex armament parts reduce costs and production time with minimal risk of hidden flaws, testing and analyzing the construction before creating real physical prototypes or optimizing parameters in parallel with the physical prototypes. The report presents the possibility of rapid prototyping through the virtual 3D model of the SPG-9 breech and using additive manufacturing to obtain a functioning physical prototype.
