Additive Manufacturing also known as additive layer manufacturing is the industrial production name for 3D printing, a computer controlled process that creates three dimensional objects by depositing materials, usually in layers. (wikipedia)

In May 2016 a new ‘office building’ was opened in Dubai. The 250-square-metre space (2,700 square foot) is what Dubai’s Museum of the Future project is calling the world’s first 3D-printed office building. In 2017 an ambitious project to build a 3D printed skyscraper in the United Arab Emirates was announced. (wikipedia)

In 2018, biomedical engineers from the University of Utah developed a method for 3D printing ligaments and tendons. The method involves first taking stem cells from the patient and printing them on a layer of hydrogel to form a tendon or ligament. This is allowed to grow in vitro in a culture before being implanted. (https://interestingengineering.com/doctors-can-finally-3d-print-human-tissue-ligaments-and-tendons)
