1. A method of producing a complex product, the method comprising the steps of:
designing a three dimensional preform of the complex product to form a model preform by computer aided design software at using a PC controller producing a computer aided design (CAD) model of said model preform,
electronically slicing said computer aided design (CAD) model into data files producing a digital image of said model preform,
providing a photoresist/photo-curable composition,
creating a three dimensional preform of the complex product using said model preform by projecting said digital image of said model preform into said photoresist/photo-curable composition,
depositing diamond nanoparticles on said created three dimensional preform by electrophoretic deposition,
depositing copper nanoparticles on said created three dimensional preform by electroplating, and
removing the created three dimensional preform producing the complex product from the deposited diamond nanoparticles material and deposited copper nanoparticles material.
