Main 3D Printing Technologies

There is a growing number of 3D printing technologies available on the market, both for prototyping and direct manufacturing. Each technology works differently and has specific advantages and disadvantages. If you want to use 3D printing to its full potential, it is crucial to understand how each type of 3D printer works. Below you will find a quick guide to the most commonly used 3D printers:

FDM – Fused Deposition Modeling (or FFF, PJP, LPD)
Laser sintering, melting and others – SLS, SLM, DMLS, DMP, EBM, SHS
Photopolymer jetting 3D printers
Powder binding 3D printers
SLA – Stereolithography (and DLP, CDLP, CLIP)
