3D Printing

3D printing has already proven its worth in the plastic industry and grows further in terms of innovative processes, use of tricky polymers and different temperature ranges. The new methods and material are helping in developing plastic parts or objects cost-efficiently and rapidly.

This channel contains the recent advances in a new method and machine development, process optimization and product development (Filaments, 3D Printable Resins and Polymer Powders, and Sustainable Polymers apt for 3D printing). You may also find the breakthrough research projects that are developing plastic parts with challenging designs and materials.

Get industry updates related to 3D printing (selective laser sintering, laminated object manufacturing, stereolithography, fused deposition modeling and 3-dimensional printing), additive manufacturing and 4D printing directly in your mailbox.
