Additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing

In contrast to subtractive processes, in which raw materials are processed using milling, turning, drilling and other electrical processes such as electrical discharge machining, all of which remove material (e.g. using CNC machines) to produce a specific object, in additive or generative manufacturing, an object is generated by adding, applying and layering material based on a digital model. The template for production is a 3D digital model (e.g. in the form of a CAD file), which is translated into machine-readable code and processed automatically.
