Additive Manufacturing

The Additive Manufacturing Zone will spotlight the latest advances in 3D printing. It includes Additive Manufacturing users, suppliers, and supporters. The concept of 3D printing was first described in November 1950 by Raymond F Jones in the story ‘Tools of the Trade’, published in Astounding Science Fiction magazine.

Today the precision, repeatability, and material range of 3D printing has increased to the point that it is now increasingly accepted as an industrial-production technology.
