Additive manufacturing represents a new model in the way of producing parts and products. Additive Manufacturing (AM), as it is known internationally, basically consists of manipulating material on a micrometric scale and depositing it very precisely to build a solid.

The technologies that make pieces by this principle are very diverse, which means a new industrial revolution. The possibility of dispensing with tools, of reproducing any geometry that the human being can imagine (and draw), the immediacy in the response to the changing consumer demand, and another series of advantages make the AM an authentic cornerstone of the industrial future in the most developed countries on the planet.

In Euskadi there are great capacities of AM and therefore the node of Additive Manufacturing has been created within the framework of the Basque Digital Innovation Hub, where the main ST agents with capacities in this field collaborate together to offer the best service to the needs of SMEs .
