Our page on Additive Manufacturing describes several features of the technology.

And also the most appealing advantages for new applications.

It also explains why, building a part from the bottom up, is extremely inexpensive both on materials and on tooling, so that in certain case not only prototypes but entire production series can be programmed for economic production.

In particular the aerospace industry is particularly sensitive to the benefits of this approach to the point of dedicating collaborative efforts to the building of complete facilities for future production uses.

There are also short explanations on the processes employed and on the results achieved.

While most of the companies listed herein are commercial entities, there is no intention to recommend or endorse any of them.
We hope that the most important were included, and if advised, we are ready to add those who may have been left out of the list by oversight.

The references provided here are believed to be reliable but no effort was exerted to grade them by any possible criterion.

It is left to the readers to do their due diligence and find out for themselves if the services offered indeed cover their needs and purposes.

The references published in this Bulletin_112 were selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_112 were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents are given here in one of two forms.

If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.".

These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).

If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines.

In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the downloaded selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.

You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_112 Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
