3D Hubs Publishes Complete 3D Printing Technologies Infographic

To help add clarity to it all, we’ve done some research and created an overview with the most widely used 3D printing technologies infographic to serve as a useful guide.

Starting from high level grouping, the infographic guides you through the printing process, technology titles and materials, ending with the key industry players. The overview is part of our definitive guide to 3D printing, an in-depth resource covering everything from 3D printing technologies to applications.

“I’ve been part of many discussion about where to put what technology, which technologies are different and which are actually the same (take the DMLS vs. SLM battle for example),” said Filemon Schoffer, Head of Community at 3D Hubs. “Although I strongly believe we came to a good result I also realize that there’s still much to debate. So if there’s any questions or different views I’d love to discuss them in this thread.”

@Bali, @FrancescoB and @adamhayek did most of the work for this, with support from Joris Peels @Joris_21 (Twitter: @pilz) and Michael Molitch-Hou @Mike_6 (Twitter: @RealityInc) for expertise and input. Noah Fram-Schwartz, who made a very useful overview earlier that was of great help.

The infographic is about as accurate as can be and impressively up to date, including even upcoming technologies not yet fully available such as MultiJet Fusion by HP and NanoMetal Jetting by XJet. Of course it will need to be updated soon, but that’s just how the 3D printing industry goes, and 3D Hubs knows it full well

Since 2002, I have built up extensive experience as a technology journalist, market analyst and consultant for the additive manufacturing industry. Born in Milan, Italy, I spent 12 years in the United States, where I received my Bachelor of Arts undergraduate degree. As a journalist covering the tech industry - especially the videogame industry - for over 10 years, I began covering the AM industry specifically in 2013, as blogger. In 2016 I co-founded London-based 3D Printing Business Media Ltd. (now 3dpbm) which operates in marketing, editorial, and market analysis & consultancy services for the additive manufacturing industry. 3dpbm publishes 3D Printing Business Directory, the largest global directory of companies related to 3DP, and leading news and insights websites 3D Printing Media Network and Replicatore. I am also a Senior Analyst for leading US-based firm SmarTech Analysis focusing on the additive manufacturing industry and relative vertical markets.
