Additive Manufacturing Methods and Materials

"Additive Manufacturing Methods and Materials" provides a comprehensive introduction to the methods and materials that can be used in additive manufacturing (AM) including material extrusion, directed energy deposition (DED), material jetting, binder jetting, powder bed fusion (PBF), vat photopolymerization, and sheet lamination. Different AM methods require different materials, and each method provides specific advantages and disadvantages. Understanding each AM method's basic principles, advantages, and disadvantages is essential to ensuring an AM part build's success.
