Many traditional engineering materials are also available for 3D printing, while other materials have needed to be adapted to be used with the various printing technologies.
Whether you can work with the same materials that you are used to, or you need to look for new and optimized materials, depends entirely on the application. Fortunately, there is help available.
We have many years of experience with different materials for 3D printing - both polymers and metals - and we can help you map out the material options for your specific application.
As an example, the image below shows an overview of plastic materials for Laser Powder Bed Fusion from aminception.com
If you are unfortunate and cannot find a material on the market that matches your specific needs, we are also happy to help you develop a material for your application.
