There are several different processes that come under the 3D printing umbrella, but they all work on the same basic principle of converting a 3D digital design into thin cross sections and depositing material on top of each of these cross sections to produce a 3-dimensional object. This is known as Additive Manufacture or AM.
3D printing, additive manufacturing and related technologies explore emerging challenges and opportunities ranging from new developments of processes and materials to new simulation and design tools as well as informative applications and case studies. Novel applications in new areas, such as medicine, education, bio-printing, food printing, art and architecture are also encouraged. Our team combined has over twenty years of industry experience and we bring high-quality 3D printing within everybody’s reach.
