Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing: A Low Cost Desktop 3D Printer

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it is commonly known, enables the creation of complex 3D geometries through the selective layer-by-layer deposition of material. The versatility of 3D printing as a manufacturing process removes the need for specific tooling allowing the process to have significantly reduced production times compared to traditional subtractive manufacturing processes such as milling or turning. Its uses are expanding on a daily basis but has found application in aerospace, medical and motorsports applications. The term 3D...
