Additive manufacturing is becoming a prominent technique to lower costs without impacting quality. The electronics industry is starting to use additive manufacturing techniques to create components. There are many techniques that mimic well know printing approaches from other industries. Traces and components can be screen printed onto substrates much like the fashion industry does for clothes. Inkjet printing can be used to print circuit patterns onto substrates just like most printers create paper documents. Each of these techniques can use the similar “ink” material to print the electronics.
