1. What is Additive Manufacturing and how it works?

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is the process of creating an object by building it one layer at a time. Unlike subtractive manufacturing, where an object is formed by cutting away material from a solid block, additive manufacturing adds material to construct the final product.
