Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a revolutionary technology that is rapidly transforming various industries, including healthcare and aerospace. With this process, a three-dimensional object is created layer by layer using a digital model, resulting in intricate and precise designs that traditional manufacturing methods struggle to match. Additive manufacturing's potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry and produce innovative products that were previously impossible to manufacture is immense.
