3D Printing Polymers

The powder will be chemical compound or many other alternative materials and a range of binders will be utilized based on the powder used. Fused filament fabrication (FFF) (or fused deposition modelling – FDM) was developed in the early 1990s as another 3D printing approach that like SLS uses preformed polymer as the building material. PLA is a biodegradable plastic made from renewables such as corn-starch. While several 3D-printer manufacturers are providing metal 3D-printing services, it’ll be some time before the economies of scale that helped bring down the price of plastic 3D printing affect the DMLS market.

3 Types of Plastic Used in 3D Printing-

·         Polylactic Acid (PLA)

·         Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)

·         Polyvinyl Alcohol Plastic (PVA)
