AM Terminology

Wohlers Talk

Sheet lamination—an additive manufacturing process in which sheets of material are bonded to form a part. Vat photopolymerization—an additive manufacturing process in which liquid photopolymer in a vat is selectively cured by light-activated polymerization.

Additive or Subtractive Manufacturing: Which is Better?

Shapeways Blog

Sheet Lamination. Sheet lamination stacks and laminates sheets of material like plastic, paper or metal layer by layer. Vat photopolymerization. Manufacturers are always seeking the best ways of optimizing production, reducing costs and improving the outcomes of their parts and products. Among the various methods of manufacturing, two are highly prominent: additive and subtractive manufacturing.
