Abstract:

Solid freeform SFF and additive fabrication processes are defining a revolutionary new approach for materials manufacturing that is leading to a capability for producing parts quicker, cheaper and with more functionality than previously thought possible. The key aspect of these direct fabrication techniques is the ability to deposit or build up material only where it is required to produce finished parts. The additive nature of these processes leads to tremendous flexibility in the shape and complexity of parts that can be fabricated.
