Stratasys releases periodic table of 3D printable thermoplastics

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

Stratasys Strategic Consulting come up with this idea to see just how many different polymeric materials today’s 3D printing technologies are currently able to process. Before you scroll to the bottom for the juicy infographic, take a stab at it yourself. How many thermoplastics do you think the industry is currently able to process?

The results? Well, it’s a bit of mixed bag, there’s certainly more materials available than you might expect, including ABS, PMMA, PC, PEI, PA, PEEK and PET. But, as you can also see, there are also many semi-crystalline, engineering and performance polymers waiting to be characterized for 3D printing. In fact, while challenges remain, some have already achieved 3D printing of PP (polypropylene) in thermoplastic filaments or even powders via SLS.
