Additive Manufacturing vs. Subtractive Manufacturing

Let’s talk about Additive Manufacturing vs. Subtractive Manufacturing. To begin, additive manufacturing is the end-to-end process that creates products using 3D printing technology. This process includes proper design, slicing, and supports along with post processing necessary to produce a finished product. Subtractive manufacturing on the other hand, removes material by cutting, boring, drilling or grinding […]

3D Printing Explained

3D Printing Explained

3D printing (a.k.a. additive manufacturing) is the process of stacking thin layers of material to build a complex object or structure. Engineers create a CAD (computer-aided design) file which is later used to produce the build. The printer uses the CAD file to virtually divide the object into thin layers. This file acts as a […]
