Common challenge

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies. A major challenge for the industry is to move this emergent technology forward from its prototyping history into a true manufacturing capability. The process has the potential to revolutionise design, production and supply of parts, but exploitation has been limited, especially for AM of metal parts, because the post processing of AM manufactured parts is too costly in terms of time and energy.
