#3DPrinting and #AdditiveManufacturing Will Grow in 2017: New and Better Materials

In 2017, materials for 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM) will be getting better and more closely fine-tuned for higher-quality and larger end-production parts. At the same time, the types of materials available for 3D printing processes continue to widen, at the low, medium, and high ends. The expansion of engineering-grade materials is being helped along by multiple sources. These include standards bodies, government labs, consortia, and other groups, as well as more large materials companies like Solvay entering the fray. Another major source will be companies leveraging off of HP's Multi Jet Fusion ecosystem open materials market headed by products from Evonik and BASF. Standards and Guidelines for Improving AM Materials Making high-quality end-production parts with AM and 3D printing methods requires some carefully defined standards and guidelines for materia...
