What is Digital Manufacturing? Digital Manufacturing (for purposes of this program) is a collective term that encompasses numerous technologies utilised to produce and decorate products from digital files in a production environment. Examples of terms which we define as being various forms of digital manufacturing include 3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping, Rapid Manufacturing, Personal Manufacturing, Product Decoration and Layered Manufacturing among others – all of which manufacture end products from a digital file using computer controlled devices in a primarily additive process – rather than subtractive processes typically utilised in traditional manufacturing (milling, machining, etc.).

Technologies currently being used for digital manufacturing include stereolithography, inkjet printing/deposition, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modeling, aerosol jet deposition, solid ground curing, laser engineered net shaping and ultrasonic consolidation among numerous others.
