Topic: Additive Manufacturing: Industry Application in Indiana
This promises to be an instructive and stimulating discussion of a process that is revolutionizing manufacturing. Additive Manufacturing encompasses many technologies including subsets like 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping (RP), Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), layered manufacturing and additive fabrication.
Early use of Additive Manufacturing in the form of Rapid Prototyping focused on preproduction visualization models. More recently, Additive Manufacturing is being used to fabricate end-use products in aircraft, dental restorations, medical implants, automobiles, and even fashion products.
While the adding of layer-upon-layer approach is simple, there are many applications of AM technology with degrees of sophistication to meet diverse needs including:
- a visualization tool in design
- a means to create highly customized products for consumers and professionals alike
- as industrial tooling
- to produce small lots of production parts
