Additive Manufacturing
Describes the technologies that build 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material
Aerosol Jetting
A 3-D printing process; the patented Aerosol Jet process utilizes an innovative aerodynamic focusing technology to produce electronic and physical structures with feature sizes as small as 5 microns
To boil off impurities
Cutting and Grinding
Sharpen, smooth, or produce (something) by crushing or by friction
Electron Beam Melting
A 3-D printing process where fully dense metal components are built up by layers of metal powder, melted by a powerful electron beam; each layer is melted to the exact geometry defined by a CAD model
Using a substance, such as cloth, paper, porous porcelain, or a layer of charcoal or sand, through which liquid or gas is passed to remove suspended impurities or to recover solids
Inkjet 3-D Printing
Uses a print head to spray liquid layers that are usually then solidified by exposure to UV light
Laser Sintering
A 3-D printing process in which tiny particles of plastic, ceramic or glass are fused together by heat from a high-power laser to form a solid, three-dimensional object
A machine tool that rotates the workpiece on its axis to perform various operations with tools that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about an axis of rotation
Metal Spinning
Metalworking process by which a disc or tube of metal is rotated at high speed and formed into an axially symmetric part
A process performed with a machine in which the cutters rotate to remove the material from the work piece present in the direction of the angle with the tool axis
A first or preliminary model of something from which other forms are developed or copied
Metal forming method in which a sheet is shaped by bending, folding, pressing, stretching, and/or twisting, usually with pressing machinery
Subtractive Manufacturing
The creation or shaping of a product by material removal
Wood Turning
The action of shaping wood with a lathe
Computer Aided Manufacturing
Application technology that uses computer software and machinery to facilitate and automate manufacturing processes
Cost of Production
Many factors impact cost from price of raw materials to worker wages
To work out the structure or form of something
The standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind
Rhino 4.0
A 3D modeling software that is very easy to use
A simple, online 3D design and printing app
