All created in the Nature is the result of natural technology. Solutions from Nature can be incentive for artificial, man's technology of living (biotechnology) and technology of abiogenesis. We have set ourselves the question what is a natural additive model for making parts. After geological analysis and playback of some products of Nature and man-making procedures of additive components was found. Natural model for these procedures to create additive components is the formation of sedimentary rocks before 3.75 billion years ago. At the same time we made systematization of additive production and additive manufacturing of these procedures, the first revolutionary change in the primary shaping after 4.3 billion years.
