Helisys has extended the capabilities of its rapid prototyping system, known as laminated object manufacturing (LOM), to make models from 0.125mm thick plastic sheet.

It is available through Umak of Birmingham.

The plastic offers moisture resistance, improved flexibility and higher mechanical strength compared with paper.

It widens the range of application of the LOM process to encompass high-moisture processes such as plaster casting or green sand casting.
