In this paper, we develop methodologies for the integration of Layered Manufacturing and traditional material removal processes into an integrated manufacturing setup. The scenarios under which this integration would be beneficial are identified and algorithms for the integration developed. As examples, we consider two current Layered Manufacturing technologies that use Material Removal operations as a part of their process. The benefits of our procedure are demonstrated by examples.
