1BACHELORS OF BUSINESSExecutive SummaryThe main aim of the report is to discuss the process and the advantages of 3D printing. Theprocess of 3D printing is also referred to as additive manufacturing and it deals with the additionof successive layers. The report further discusses the different use of 3D printing and additivemanufacturing. The future trend of 3D printing is also discussed in this report.

3BACHELORS OF BUSINESSIntroductionThree dimensional printing or additive manufacturing is a technology that is gaining agradual traction and is capable of changing the world. It is a revolutionary and emergingtechnology that can add a new dimension to the process of traditional designing andmanufacturing. The technology of 3D printing is gradually gaining popularity for its implicationsin economic, social, demographic and environment field. Additive manufacturing or AM offers anew paradigm for the engineering drawings and designs, which has a profound implication ingeopolitical, economic and demographic implications. Additive manufacture can have aprofound effect and impact on the manufacturing world and can acts as a primary step inprotection of environment as well as in resource productivity[ CITATION Cam11 \l 16393 ].The report discusses the process of three dimensional printing and additive manufacturing. Itfurther discusses the different situations in which the 3D printing is most valuable. The differentimplications of three dimensional printing are elaborated in the following paragraphs.1. Why is 3D printing more appropriately called additive manufacturing?Three dimensional printing is a process by which a digital image in converted into a 3 Dimage or prototype. This process is generally done by the adding subsequent layers of materialsto give a three dimensional appearance. Since the process of 3D printing involves creation of animage by successive addition of layers of materials back to back, it is often referred to as additivemanufacturing. This layers are of limited thickness, which generally lies between 16 to 180micron. Since the process of 3D printing involves addition of thinly sliced layers, a horizontalcross section of the image reveals the presence of the layers. Therefore, this process of additivemanufacturing, which is also referred to as 3 D printing is used for construction of objects and
