Additive versus Subtractive Manufacturing
Project size is another deciding factor when comparing additive and subtractive manufacturing methods. Because of the limitations of 3D printing when it comes to material costs, production times, design alterations, and material types, 3D printing is constrained to the fabrication of small sized, low-volume production runs. Conversely, 3D CNC technology can handle the full range of project sizes. From a detailed rubber stamp to a 40 foot bronze sculpture, size is no object. To this end,...
