Subtractive and added substance fabricating processes are regularly utilized one next to the other at the various stages in assembling. Sometimes the product relies on both subtractive and additive manufacturing processes.
3D printing offers a wide scope of material choices for the prototyping of plastic parts. However, additive manufacturing is well suited for small parts and intricate designs.
In the later stages of the development process, the subtractive process becomes more competitive. Due to a large number of choices in surface finish, subtractive manufacturing is the most often choice for fabricating finished parts.
