Series - 3D Printing - Process & Materials

Once in production, a 3D model will be printed layer by layer using one of four potential 3D printing processes and corresponding materials:

These are four of the common 3D printing methodologies and since the introduction of metal, 3D printing has moved past prototyping and art and has become a viable manufacturing technology.

3D printing processes and materials are the link that allows virtual to become physical in the 3D print and manufacturing supply chain.
