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.

The paper presents the results of research focused on the use of innovative processes in the production of composite materials. The experimental work was focused on the use of Vacuum Bag Molding technology in the production of the prototype of the Shell Ecomarathon formula. The car body was designed with 3D modeling and optimized with airflow simulation. Carbon fibers have been used to reduce the vehicle’s weight. Some complementary parts were produced using 3D printing.
