Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is defined as the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies. 

Additive manufacturing creates limitless opportunities for prototyping and one-off to medium-sized batch production. Working with this technology gives you the advantage of speedy production, low cost material, and quick form analysis. Additive manufacturing is at the frontier of manufacturing technology, and CDME wants to put this resource into your hands.
