What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive Manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, is the process of creating three-dimensional objects from detailed digital models. With the ability to print layer by layer, additive manufacturing technologies enable the rapid production of complex designs and prototypes whilst minimising waste from excess materials. The applications of additive manufacturing are incredibly varied – from household objects to aerospace engines – highlighting that the technology is only limited by the imagination.

Practical Applications of Additive Manufacturing

There are countless practical applications for AM technology, ranging from developing engine components to designing prosthetics for medical patients. Some industry-specific examples of additive manufacturing applications include:

  • Manufacturing aerospace equipment: from engine components to structural parts, 3D printing allows engineers to design and produce incredibly complex, lightweight equipment, designed specifically for aerospace technologies.
  • Automotive prototyping: rapid prototyping allows engineers to develop new technologies and even produce new vehicles in record time, significantly reducing time to market.
  • Medical advancements: with the ability to customize medical devices, implants and prosthetics to accommodate individual patients’ needs, AM technology is contributing to improved surgical success rates and increased patient comfort.  

Benefits of Additive Manufacturing


Additive manufacturing technology offers a wide variety of unique benefits for each industry. However, some universal benefits include:

  • Reduced waste: with the ability to print to exact design specifications, additive manufacturing generates less waste material and reduces material consumption. 
  • Rapid production: once a successful prototype has been developed, that exact digital design can be used for production purposes, rapidly reducing time to market. 
  • Lower costs: developing products and prototypes directly from digital designs reduces spending on specialist equipment necessary for traditional manufacturing. 
  • Design flexibility: working from a digital blueprint allows designers to adapt products and prototypes quickly and inexpensively.
