Additive manufacturing (AM), also referred to as 3D printing or rapid prototyping, is “a process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies.” This definition is broadly applicable to all classes of materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and natural materials. Current AM technology is widely used to print polymers, metals and ceramics but is limited to other commonly used materials. By far polymer remains one of the most versatile materials. The use of polymers in 3D printing encompasses thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, hydrogels, functional polymers, polymer blends, composites, and biological systems.
