Additive Manufacturing is the magazine devoted to industrial applications of 3D printing and digital layering technology to make functional parts.
We don’t cover 3D printing as it relates to making design models, movie props, sculpture or swimwear (sorry).
Instead, we speak to a manufacturing audience. We are exploring the use of additive manufacturing to make tooling, molds and functional prototypes, along with the ultimate aim of manufacturers: end-use production parts.
We report on the promise of additive manufacturing in these applications. We also report on the pitfalls. Staff members write about successes with additive manufacturing and the hard roads that led to those successes.
Editor-in-chief Peter Zelinski has written about discrete-part manufacturing for more than 20 years. Since 1997, he has written about CNC machining (i.e., subtractive manufacturing) as part of the staff of a sister magazine, Modern Machine Shop.
Additive Manufacturing is published quarterly. See our archive of back issues. Between issues, new content is being added to this site all the time. Along with the magazine, we also send an e-newsletter, and you can subscribe to both.
We want to hear from you. (Among other things, we’re always interested in story suggestions.) You can tweet at us or send any of us an e-mail using the “Contact” links on this page.
