It’s becoming increasingly evident that, despite the rising popularity of other materials in additive manufacturing, polymers remain the backbone of the industry. According to Hubs, the most widely-used technologies today, such as FDM, SLA, and SLS, all rely on plastics. Moreover, a report from Markets and Markets reveals that the 3D printing plastics market was valued at $721 million in 2022 and is projected to reach a valuation of $1.9 billion by 2027. These figures speak for themselves, highlighting the continued significance of polymers in additive manufacturing. But what does the average user need to know about polymers in 3D printing? What makes them so crucial? Attend ADDITIV Polymers World to find the answers to these burning questions and more.

At ADDITIV Polymers World, we will delve into the intersection of 3D printing and polymers, shedding light on their intricate relationship and exploring their synergies. Workshops and panel discussions will be the focal points of this event, featuring distinguished speakers from organizations such as ORNL, Ford, L’Oréal, Alpine Racing Formula 1, and NIST. These experts will delve into various aspects of polymer 3D printing, such as the use of composites versus high-performance polymers in additive manufacturing, the role of polymer 3D printing in creating consumer goods, and how additive manufacturing with plastic materials can contribute to a circular economy. Meanwhile, in the workshops, attendees can gain valuable insights from experts who will deliver presentations on specific topics. These sessions will cover a wide range of areas, including the certification process for parts made using polymer 3D printing and maximizing the potential of engineering materials for additive manufacturing.
