Rather than molding an indeterminate hunk of raw materials into specific parts or components, additive manufacturing uses the specific volumes of material required to sculpt objects layer by layer.

This unique process comes with a host of advantages that expand the boundaries of feasibility in manufacturing. More practically, however, those unfamiliar with metal 3-D printing should note that its share of the total manufacturing market is growing rapidly.
