White Paper – The Fast Radius Guide to Additive Polymers
In the past decade, additive manufacturing has grown from an effective way to manufacture prototypes to an industrial-grade production technology capable of making end-use parts.
Advances in additive manufacturing materials are a major reason for this evolution. The number of materials available for additive manufacturing has more than doubled in the past five years and prices are continuously decreasing, making these materials competitive with injection molded polymers. The technical capabilities of these polymers, along with the attractive economics, have allowed more companies to take advantage of the opportunities that 3D printing offers including rapid product development, making previously impossible geometries, and on-demand production for low-volume parts.
Still, organizations report that issues with materials—not limitations of the production technologies themselves—are the primary reason they don’t employ 3D printing for end-use parts more often. Manufacturers don’t consider making additive parts because they believe — incorrectly — that additive materials cannot meet their requirements for cost, strength, or reliability.
