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
