WayKen Uses Aluminum and CNC Machining to Create Automotive Reflector Prototypes

While 3D printing is additive in nature, building layers one on top of the other, another frequently used technology in rapid prototyping is CNC, which is subtractive in that it mills away layers of material, instead of adding them, to build parts. But there are many times that these two technologies go hand in hand when […]
