Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, are redefining all aspects of our lives. Although additive manufacturing has been around for decades, technological advancements have led to new interest in this technology throughout the industry. Through a process involving fabricating components by joining materials such as plastics or metals layer-by-layer from a sliced 3-D computer-aided design model, Auburn engineers are examining how manufacturers can 3-D print complex components on site, thus reducing the supply chain, eliminating waste and maximizing profits. With the Center for Industrialized Additive Manufacturing established, researchers are collaborating with companies to evolve the future of this industry.
