Jet electrodeposition is one of electrochemical machining methods, which is able to increase cathodic current density, therefore having high deposition rate, good locality and nanocrystalline structure. These advantages enable jet electro-deposition to integrate with rapid prototyping technology in an effort to achieve selective electro-deposition on the cathode surface. This paper combine both methods to prepare nanocrystalline copper parts. The equipment system is developed, which is mainly composed of computer control system, machine body, electrolyte circulation system, nozzle and its hoisting mechanism and other parts. Deposition rate, locality, deposit thickness distribution and forming accuracy are analyzed. A group of nanocrystalline copper parts having good shape and size precision have been prepared. Influencing factors on forming accuracy are analyzed.
