Additive manufacturing promises to revolutionize the way we build things. Using new technologies like 3D printing and laser melting, traditional manufacturing processes, like forging, casting and machining, are being turned upside down.
With additive manufacturing complexity is free. We can now make lighter-weight, geometrically-optimized, metal parts that offer the same functionality as their traditionally machined counterparts, with little to no material waste
