Meet the Xometry Team at SOLIDWORKS World 2018!

Greg Paulsen, Director of Applications Engineering at Xometry, will be providing an expert comparison of Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing at SWW18.

By Shilpa Garg · January 31, 2018

CNC Machining and 3D Printing have their own unique histories, with pros and cons to each, and both have been revolutionized by instant quoting. Our instant quoting platform quickly provides prices and manufacturability feedback for your parts for a variety of both additive and subtractive processes.

Once both additive and subtractive processes are optimized, how should you decide which manufacturing process is ideal for your parts?

The best way to learn more about the benefits of additive vs subtractive manufacturing is to attend Additive vs Subtractive Manufacturing and Subtractive for Additive at the Additive Manufacturing Symposium at SOLIDWORKS World 2018. Our Director of Applications Engineering, Greg Paulsen, will be answering this crucial question to give you key takeaways before you design your next custom part.

His session will discuss how both additive and subtractive methods can create precise parts, but have different benefits and considerations to keep in mind. Depending on the shape and ultimate application of your part, this decision could have a substantial effect on your part’s price, structure, and lead time. Learn which method you should choose using his key takeaways and learnings about the latest developments in the Additive Manufacturing industry.
