bradley hasemeyer visits the gm rapid prototyping center

Rapid prototyping is the process of turning math and chemistry into a physical item. Well, that is our extremely dumbed-down explanation, because the real explanation is soaring hundreds of feet over our heads. Still, it's a process that is used rather extensively in the automotive industry because it allows engineers and product development teams to quickly produce a part from scratch, and then see how it would fit on an actual car.

Translogic, along with host Bradley Hasemeyer, ventured to Michigan to visit with General Motors at its Warren Tech Center. Inside, Hasemeyer was able to get up close and personal with the rapid prototyping process, and GM even minted the Translogic crew a special rapidly made item to take with them.
