Additive manufacturing (AM) refers to a process that builds up a component in layers, as opposed to a subtractive operation, which removes matter from a block of material to form a product.[1,2] An increase in customer demand for customizable, quick turnaround, low cost products has opened the door for AM processes to enter the large scale production market once dominated by subtractive processes. Compared to AM, subtractive operations have relatively high capital costs and limited product design flexibility. This article provides an overview of several AM processes and presents current and emerging applications and the benefit of AM technology for the commercial and defense industries.
