Beyond Production – How 3D Printing is Advancing Business Transformation

June 19, 2018


Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing refers to the set of processes used for manufacturing physical objects directly from a digital model. It utilizes raw materials added one layer at a time, undergoing various processes to create a finished product without the use of tools and molds. This is distinguished by the following main elements:

  • Deposits – the way in which layers of materials are deposited (e.g.: fusion, sintering, and polymerization)
  • Materials – includes solids (metallic powders, polymers, grains), liquids (photosensitive resin), and semi-finished products (ribbons and wires)
