3D printing has made incredible advancements to Manufacturing
3D printing — also known as additive manufacturing — is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a 3D model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material. It brings a digital object into its physical form by adding layer by layer of materials. To put it in simple words, you can manufacture real objects by using their digital prints.
3D printing encourages and drives innovation with unprecedented design freedom and reduces prohibitive costs and lead times. 3D printing is also an energy-efficient technology that can provide environmental efficiencies utilizing up to 90% of standard materials. A big part of the additive advantage is that pieces that used to be molded separately and then assembled can now be produced as one piece in a single run.
