Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new approach to integrated additive and subtractive manufacturing, referred to as convergent manufacturing. The method allows for 3D printing between different products. The technology morphs into different modes depending on its intended use.

Advantages:
-Efficient
-Versatile
-Improves Public Safety

Potential Applications:
-Military/Defense
-3D Printing Food
-Biomedical
-Electronics and Computer Hardware
