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, despite the recent interest in 3D printing, applications for additive technology remain largely theoretical rather than practical.  For businesses looking to incorporate automated 3D fabrication into their processes 3D CNC technology such as FROG3D is the clear choice.
