Additive Manufacturing: 3D Printing for Prototyping and Manufacturing provides the latest information on the use of additive manufacturing for the direct production of finished products, a practice that is becoming increasingly important.
This method not only reduces the demands on industrial infrastructure, but also opens up new perspectives in terms of decentralized production and customer inclusive individualized production (customization, cyberproduction).
The book is oriented towards the practitioner, presenting the basics of additive manufacturing, but also includes discussions of the properties and special aspects of industrially available machines.
From the generation of data to the forming method, the complete process chain is shown in a practical light, including discussions of polymerization (e.g., stereolithography), sintering and melting (e.g., laser sintering), and layer laminate method (e.g., laminated object manufacturing, LOM), amongst others.
