This paper reviews the emerging field of layered manufacturing. This field is little over 10 years old but a significant amount of research has been conducted and results to date are quite promising. We consider three broad topics namely, design systems for heterogeneous objects, layered manufacturing processes, and process planning techniques. Several applications/examples are included in the course of the survey and limitations of current technology identified. We conclude with some possibilities for the future.
