Additive Manufacturing (AM), Automotives, 3D Printing


Additive manufacturing is the technology which is bringing a revolution in the manufacturing of any three dimensional object. Additive manufacturing is also known as 3D printing. 3D printing is a method of manufacturing things in which materials like metals and plastic are deposited to form a three dimensional object. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing presents a series of benefits for the manufacture of single automobile component or an entire vehicle while ensuring strong, suitable physical properties. In this paper a large number of research papers on additive manufacturing and automobile had been studied. 3D printing has the potential to enable mass customization of goods on a large scale, which is now a days visible as many industries are working and producing a lot of goods from the three dimensional printing. Huge companies like Volvo, BMW, and Ford have used 3D printers for product development and rapid prototyping of their new and experimental car parts. It is the technology which is also rapidly emerging in the field of orthopedics, soft bones like cartilages and bone tissues can be obtained from this. In this research paper you will get to know about how additive manufacturing is emerging in the biggest sector of manufacturing such as an automobile industry.
