Additive Manufacturing (AM) describes technologies to build 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material, whether the material is plastic, metal, concrete or others. Once a CAD model is designed, the AM equipment reads in data from the CAD file and lays downs or adds successive layers of liquid, powder, sheet material or other, in a layer-upon-layer fashion to fabricate a 3D object. The term AM encompasses many technologies including subsets like 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping (RP), Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM), layered manufacturing and additive manufacturing.
