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 […]

When to Implement 3D Printing

Although there are many applications to pursue within 3D printing, many companies are hesitant to implement the technology. This may be due to their lack of knowledge of how to and when to apply it to their business. We’ve outlined a few key questions to consider that will kickstart the beginning of your 3D journey. […]

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 […]
