3D printing, also called additive manufacturing, is the process of using specialized equipment to assemble, via a computer and a 3D model, an object layer by layer. It has some unique and interesting advantages over traditional manufacturing.

The main differences between 3D printing and traditional manufacturing and  the advantages & disadvantages of 3D Printing & Traditional Manufacturing

- 3D can do complex shapes with less cost than the traditional machining.

- Traditional machining needs skillful workers but the 3D printing need just the CAD file of the product. 

- new 3D printing systems that  can print metal objects by using laser or electron beams on fine metallic powder.

The cost of prototype production comes out cheaper, that's the biggest advantage. The downside is that you can not do large-scale production of prototype because it does not pay.

But in coming days 3D printing will be definitely used for mass production as well.. Compnies are working on the same..
