3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created.
Technologies. 3D printing is an additive process that builds objects one layer at a time from the bottom up. The right technology depends on the materials, aesthetics, mechanical properties and performance you require. Learn about the technologies available from Stratasys and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing.
