3dpbm Advanced Polymers AM Focus 2022 eBook

Our fourth eBook publication of 2022 looks to the forefront of polymer materials in AM

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

In the additive manufacturing industry, advanced materials are really at the core of opening up new high-performance applications and increasing the value proposition of AM. Of course, AM technologies themselves are critical, but there is consensus in the industry and amongst adopters that materials—particularly advanced polymers—are instrumental to driving the adoption of 3D printing for production use cases.

In this eBook we are zooming on this highly influential segment of the AM sector. Specifically, we are focusing on high-performance materials like PEEK and PEI (ULTEM) as well as filled materials, such as fiber reinforced thermoplastics and photopolymers. In our analysis chapter, we provide a comprehensive look at the different groups of advanced 3D printing polymers on the market, including PAEKs, ULTEM and Polysulfones (PPS). This piece looks at the different material suppliers for these high-performance materials as well as their key properties and the applications they are most used for. 

This publication also includes two features. The first is a fascinating interview with executives from composite manufacturing specialist Anisoprint and AM optimization software company Additive Flow, which looks at a new integrated software solution that is unlocking greater performance potential for composite 3D printed parts. The second feature dives into Fortify’s unique DLP-based 3D printing solution, Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM), looking at how the company’s innovative technology is enabling the creation of filled photopolymers with superior properties.

3dpbm’s eBook can be viewed by scrolling through the document above or downloaded for viewing on your favorite mobile device. In our effort to maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access. We at 3dpbm have been ardently following the progress of Advanced Polymers for years, and we are pleased to put the industry in the spotlight in a new, reader-friendly way!
