Fabrication of materials involves making material from scratch using raw or precursor materials.

Additive Manufacturing is dramatically different from conventional manufacturing techniques such as machining, casting, and forging. During the process, products are formed layer by layer as the matter is repetitively built up rather than removed.

We also develop new "inks" and resins that enable direct 3D printing of our advanced materials.
