What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing, also known as rapid prototyping or 3D printing, is a technology that constructs objects layer by layer, offering unparalleled flexibility in design and production. Unlike traditional subtractive manufacturing methods, which remove material to create shapes, additive manufacturing adds material only where it's needed, reducing waste and energy usage.

When Additive Works

One of the biggest advantages of additive manufacturing is the ability to create complex geometries that would be impossible with traditional manufacturing methods. Additionally, it allows for faster prototyping and customization. However, there are also some drawbacks to consider, such as the high cost of equipment and materials, limited material options, and slower production speeds for larger quantities.

Here at Voxel, we deliver such significant performance improvements during the design process, it allows companies to take full advantage of additive manufacturing.
