Additive manufacturing technologies, also known as 3D printing, is a process that allows you to create physical 3-dimensional objects from a computer design file.
It could one day be responsible for the second industrial revolution. This technology started small and has continued to transform over the last thirty years and is quickly advancing.
One interesting thing about additive manufacturing technology is, it allows for a quick innovation. You can try out designs over and over again, and test out the physical part at the end of the design cycle.
There’s a wide variety of materials used in making these objects, for example, polymer composites, metals, ceramics, and exotic materials like gels.
It’s incredible what you can make with these materials. [Read more…] about The Awesome and Endless Possibilities of Additive Manufacturing
