As technology moved from analog to digital, additive manufacturing became possible. Also known as 3D printing, additive manufacturing is the process by which a computer-rendered (CAD) model design is produced by a machine layer by layer.

This process has made it possible to quickly and efficiently produce prototypes bringing designs to life in minutes to hours, depending on the intricacy.
