      A subscription to the Fusion 360 Additive Build Extension is required in addition to an active subscription to Fusion 360. Additive Build Extension subscriptions are available both monthly and yearly.

      Metal additive manufacturing, also known as metal 3D printing, takes the additive manufacturing process and applies it to exclusively metals. By layering metal powders, precise objects can be designed and constructed.

      Yes, 3D printing and additive manufacturing are synonyms for the same process. Both terms reference the process of building parts by joining material layer by layer from a CAD file.

      Additive manufacturing is a process that adds successive layers of material to create an object, often referred to as 3D printing. Subtractive manufacturing, as the name suggests, is the opposite. Rather than adding layers, subtractive manufacturing involves removing sections of a material by machining or cutting it away. It can be carried out manually or, more commonly by a process known as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining.
