Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) offers the ultimate potential for minimising waste

The inspirational 20th Century furniture designer Ludvig Mies van der Rohe is credited with saying that ‘Less is more’, and when it comes to additive manufacturing, we must agree!

Whereas subtractive manufacturing – CNC machining - is all about cutting excess material away until the desired shape and size is achieved, additive manufacturing takes precision and material control to the next level. In particular, the process of Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM®) offers the ultimate potential for minimising waste and enabling the creation of larger, cost-effective metal parts.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
