Additive Manufacturing


Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. 3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing, which entails cutting/ hollowing out a piece of metal or plastic. 3D printing enables the production of complex (functional) shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods. Employees who are competent in Industry 4.0 Additive Manufacturing will be able to understand 3D printing or additive manufacturing technologies and techniques including machine types, consumer and professional-grade machine options, and related tools, jigs, and fixtures.
