In classical manufacturing there is appr. 10 000 different materials available. However, in additive manufacturing, there are currently only a few hundred available. The reason for this is that in additive manufacturing the material properties can be altered substantially by changing the printer parameters. This is one of the huge benefits of additive manufacturing, as material properties can be adjusted to fit specific use cases during manufacturing. On the other hand, this makes also the development of new materials and printer parameters extremely time and cost-intensive.
