After many years, 3D printing is very well established in industry and some medical applications. Not only does it play a major role in component development and prototype design but there is now the industrial production of components, known as additive manufacturing. The complexity of printers and the range of materials is extensive; plastics, powder, resin and metal, but for small printers that can print volumes of up to approximately a 200mm cube, plastics and resin are the most affordable, with the choice depending upon the application of the product.
