Is it possible to print anything? That is a valid question in the world of 3D technology in which 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, can be used to output almost anything via digital simulation, including cars. Additive manufacturing uses various technologies to produce a part by building layer upon layer. One of its benefits is streamlining the overall manufacturing process by removing the need for costly castings and machined tooling. Production of gas turbines in Finspång, Sweden is a prime example of the technological advancements being made in the overall production process.
