    Additive Manufacturing and Electric Vehicles

    Additive Manufacturing and Electric Vehicles

    Manufacturers of electric vehicles (EVs) seem to be adopting additive manufacturing (AM) more readily into production than the conventional automotive industry and other transportation segments have. This adoption is in part because of the functional and geometric possibilities that additive brings, but it is also because EVs are being made in lower quantities and represent new product platforms without existing supply chains, tooling and processes to contend with. In this episode of the AM Radio podcast, Julia Hider and I discuss various ways that AM is and could be used to advance the future of transportation based on electric vehicles. 
    This episode of the AM Radio podcast is brought to you by The Additive Manufacturing Conference at IMTS.

    21 - Do the 7 Families of Additive Manufacturing Technologies Still Make Sense?

    21 - Do the 7 Families of Additive Manufacturing Technologies Still Make Sense?

    Additive manufacturing contains more than 3D printing, but even this term carries multiple meanings. 3D printing might mean extruding plastic, or depositing binder into metal, or melting material with lasers, or any number of other things. In this episode, Stephanie Hendrixson and Peter Zelinski try to stump each other with some unusual 3D printing processes and consider whether the "Seven Families of Additive Manufacturing Technologies" are still relevant 10 years after they were created.
