3D Printing Materials
Because of the advantages and incredible versatility of 3D printing, there are many different types of 3D printing materials. We can group the most common 3D printing materials into Thermoplastic, photopolymer, metal and continuous fiber, including their different properties, cost considerations and applications.
Thermoplastics, which meet the specific needs of different sectors with their wide material diversity, play an important role in the production of functional parts thanks to their properties such as high impact resistance and chemical resistance. With developing material technology, parts suitable for end product use can be obtained.
Composite fibers generally increase certain properties of traditional 3D printed parts, such as strength, stiffness, heat resistance and durability. Continuous fiber strands are coated with a curing agent and placed into a thermoplastic matrix via a secondary printing nozzle.
Photopolymer resins, which can change form with UV light, differ within themselves to meet different needs. Photopolymers, which are considered the best quality solution for visual prototypes; Depending on the material type, it can also be used for different needs such as strength, transparency, high temperature resistance and flexibility.
There are many different material options in metal 3D printing technology, where complex structures can be easily produced compared to traditional production methods. Durable parts can be easily obtained, especially in sectors with special needs such as lightweight and lattice structures with cooling channels with the high freedom in design
