3-D: A Technology That Will Affect More Than Just Your Television


Additive Layer Manufacturing, or ALM for short, is the process by which solid objects, of virtually any shape, are created from a digital model. ALM creates objects by repeatedly adding layers of a given material, one on top of another, and fusing them together. ALM is superior to traditional manufacturing processes given that it produces zero waste.

As opposed to conventional manufacturing processes, which rely on the removal of raw materials to produce final products, ALM utilizes an additive process, whereby raw material/s is/are added, layer upon layer (similar to making a layer cake), until the final product emerges; thus it produces no waste. (more)
