3d Printing and Addictive Manufacturing

3d Printing and Addictive Manufacturing: It is a process of making 3-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The formation of a 3D-printed thing is completed using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down sequent layers of material until the object is generated. The additive manufacturing process that creates a physical object from a digital design

The term “additive manufacturing” refers to the creation of objects by “adding” material. Therefore, 3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing (AM) or additive layer manufacturing (ALM) is the industrial production name for 3D printing, a computer-controlled process that makes three-dimensional objects by putting materials, usually in layers.

Charles Hull is the inventor of stereolithography, the first commercial rapid prototyping technology commonly known as 3D printing

They are 3 types of 3D printing:

  • Stereolithography (SLA)
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
