Currently, there is access to a variety of technologies that bring countless benefits to the industry every day, among them we find additive manufacturing, which is recognized worldwide for 3D printing. However, there are different branches or families in which this technology can be classify, this study focuses on the printing of electronic circuits through additive manufacturing. With the aim of identifying the advantages that this technology brings, against traditional technologies such as subtractive manufacturing in electronic circuits. Using a mixed methodology, these advantages are defined by analyzing the machining time as a dependent variable, various tests are carried out using additive manufacturing oriented and a subtractive one, where the most important results are the multiplatform work of the additive manufacturing against their extended machining times, it means, the time of the subtractive processes is approximately 8% of those employed in the other technology. Finally, it is concluded that additive manufacturing has a variety of advantages but that the use of subtractive technologies is more productive for the industry.
