3D printing materials

Following are the various kinds of material used by industrial 3D printers. Personal 3D printers use only a limited number of materials, mostly thermoplastic. The source of this data is U.K.-based Econolyst (www.econolyst.co.uk), which was acquired by Stratsys in 2015. See 3D printing and 3D printer.
