Additive Manufacturing

 
 
Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is a process to create, layer by layer, a physical object as a three-dimensional part using a variety of materials that include plastics, metals, ceramics and more. It is widely used in medical, aerospace and for prototyping applications, and continues to expand into many other industries.
