What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing is the process of creating an object by building it one layer at a time. It is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing, in which an object is created by cutting away at a solid block of material until the final product is complete.

Technically, additive manufacturing can refer to any process where a product is created by building something up, such as molding, but it typically refers to 3-D printing.

To create an object using additive manufacturing, someone must first create a design. This is typically done using computer aided design, or CAD, software, or by taking a scan of the object someone wants to print.

Additive manufacturing uses any number of materials, from polymers, metals, and ceramics to foams, gels, and even biomaterials

Additive Manufacturing is an appropriate name to describe the technologies that build 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material, whether the material is plastic, metal or  concrete.

Additive Manufacturing is quite simply defined at 3D printing and joining materials together to make a 3D object.

Additive Manufacturing refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a component in layers by depositing material. The term “3D printing” is increasingly used as a synonym for Additive Manufacturing.

We know the term 3D Printing. Right? this is what you call additive manufacturing. If you understand additive manufacturing is simply another name for 3D Printing.
