What is Additive Manufacturing? 3D Printing Basic Principles

Additive Manufacturing is very important and essential topic in Industry 4.0 transformation. Additive Manufacturing may be defined as a computer-controlled 3D Printing process that creates 3-dimensional objects by depositional materials such as proper polymers, ceramics, or metals in multiple layers of equal thickness. These objects are built layer by layer which is in contrast to traditional manufacturing that often requires machining or other techniques to remove surplus material. In details, additive manufacturing is initiated by forming computer-aided design (CAD) and modeling that arranges a set of digital features of the product and submit descriptions of the items to industrial machines. …
