For those who have heard the terms “3D printing” and “additive manufacturing” without knowing precisely what they refer to, AMT—The Association For Manufacturing Technology—created this graphic depicting how the additive manufacturing process works. The reference additionally lists the various processes that additive manufacturing includes. This graphic is also available as a downloadable PDF.

With AMT’s support, Modern Machine Shop and MoldMaking Technology magazines last year launched a quarterly supplement titled Additive Manufacturing. Learn more about additive manufacturing at this supplement’s website.
