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.
- Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM)
- Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
- Vat Photopolymerization
- Material Jetting
- Binder Jetting
- Direct Energy Deposition
Additive Manufacturing Applications:
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.
