Additive / Layer Manufacturing (AM), or bottom-up processes are a group of processes that manufacture (near)-net shape products by building them layer by layer in an additive way, starting from digital data (CAD data, medical scan data).When using laser cladding (also referred to as laser metal deposition, LMD) as the additive process, a powder is applied to a component through a nozzle.
