Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been receiving extensive publicity in the last year from the executive branch of the government to TV, newspapers, magazines, and industrial publications. Transitioning rapid prototyping equipment and processes to AM is being funded extensively by industry and governments around the world. An overview of the various processes currently available will be given and their suitability for manufacturing end use parts.
