3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing
This is a channel about 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (AM) for manufacturing professionals. AM is a fast-moving area of manufacturing technology and there are a wide variety of technologies use to 3D print or build objects, such as stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), digital light processing (DLP), direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and more. At Advanced Manufacturing Media, we partner with RAPID - the leading conference and exposition for 3D printing -- and cover all AM methods, including emerging ones, such as Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM).
Taking stock of a surprising and challenging 2016, a number of trends may point to a future where manufacturing output increases while continuing to decentralize. This may give hope to a surprising future of a distributed economy that begins to erode the monolithic big manufacturing we have taken for granted. One of the major themes of the surprising political campaigns of Read More
