Additive manufacturing is an all-encompassing term for any manufacturing process that applies material layer by layer to create three-dimensional objects. The implementation of an electronic functionality is the next revolutionary step during the ongoing transition from AM to AME. J.A.M.E.S focuses on the combination of mechanical and electronic manufacturing processes, while pursuing an interactive exchange of knowledge through the creation of AME Stories and Designs.
AME Stories are the visionary applications that cannot be realized with current conventional manufacturing technologies. They proof the need of additional break throughs in the field of AME. AME Designs plays a crucial role as (virtual) AME structures that fulfil a specified functionality, helping to reach the vision of AME stories.
