Additive manufacturing vs. 3D printing

It’s a common perception that 3D print and additive manufacturing refer to the same industrial process of layering materials to create parts. The two phrases have grown to be synonymous with the manufacturing process.
So, what precisely is the distinction between 3D print and additive manufacturing?

Guide to 3D print technologies

Ever heard of SLA, DLP, FFF or MJF?
Behind each acronym is a 3D printing technology, each with its own pros and cons.
Whether you’re new to the industry or a seasoned user, here’s a quick guide to a few of the most well-used 3D print technologies.
They all serve a purpose and can be used for a number of applications.

3D print applications

3D print is widely used in manufacturing, but there are five distinct application areas, where the technology makes a difference. Read more about each of these areas below.

JIGS & FIXTURES

Jigs and fixtures are invaluable tools in manufacturing. By 3D printing these tools, you can drastically reduce cost and improve lead times.

TOOLING

Tools such as grippers are used in many manufacturing processes. By 3D printing these, you can cut tool production cost and personalize your tools.

PROTOTYPING

Prototyping is an essential step in the product development process. 3D printing adds flexibility, proof of concept and shorter lead times.

SPARE PARTS

3D printing makes it possible to manufacture spare parts on demand and mitigates supply chain risks associated with sourcing of critical spare parts.

PRODUCTION & END PARTS

3D printing is increasingly used for the manufacturing of high quality, easily customizable end-use parts with consistent output and optimized performance.
