Also known as Additive Manufacturing, 3D printing is a complex process where an object’s model is created using CAD software – a detailed object modelling software.

There are various Additive Manufacturing Technologies and a few of them are as follows.

  1. Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM)
  2. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  3. Vat Photopolymerization
  4. Material Jetting
  5. Binder Jetting
  6. Direct Energy Deposition

Additive Manufacturing Applications:

  • Aerospace

Additive Manufacturing excels in producing the components for aerospace applications which are light in weight and stronger enough to withstand the desired load.

  • Health Care

At, New York University School of Medicine, a study of 300 patients will evaluate the efficacy of patient-specific, multi-coloured kidney cancer models using additive manufacturing.
