Additive Manufacturing of Bio and Synthetic Polymers (Editors) Emin Bayraktar, S. M. Sapuan and R. A. Ilyas

Additive manufacturing technology offers the ability to produce personalized products with lower development costs, shorter lead times, less energy consumed during manufacturing and less material waste. It can be used to manufacture complex parts and enables manufacturers to reduce their inventory, make products on-demand, create smaller and localized manufacturing environments, and even reduce supply chains. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as
fabricating three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) components, refers to processes that allow for the direct fabrication of physical products from computer-aided design (CAD) models through the repetitious deposition of material layers. Compared with traditional manufacturing processes, AM allows the production of customized parts from bio- and synthetic polymers without the need for molds or machining typical for conventional formative and subtractive fabrication.

Today, AM offers numerous advantages, i.e., little assembly required, supply chain efficiencies, sustainability, geometric flexibility, low Buy-to-Fly ratios, shortened times to market, environmentally
friendly, and the production of single and multiple components, offering incomparable design independence with the facility to manufacture components from various bio- and synthetic polymers.
These advantages make AM a major player in the next industrial revolution of polymers. Polymers and their composites are one of the most widely used materials in today’s industry and are of great interest in AM due to the vast potential for various applications, such as in the apparel, art and jewelry, electric and electronic, healthcare, biomedical, robotics, military defense, sensor and actuators, construction, aerospace and automotive industries. Polymers that are utilized in AM include hydrogels, elastomers, thermosets, thermoplastics, functional polymers, polymer composites,
polymer hybrid composites, polymer nanocomposites and polymer blends. Over the past 30 years, much research has been carried out on developing new polymeric materials for AM processes, such
as material jetting (MJ), drop-on-demand (DOD), sand binder jetting, vat photopolymerization, fused deposition modelling (FDM), stereolithography (SLA), digital light processing (DLP) and selective
laser sintering (SLS).
In this Special Issue, we aimed to capture the cutting-edge state-of-the-art research pertaining to advancing the additive manufacturing of polymeric materials. The topic themes include advanced polymeric material development, processing parameter optimization, characterization techniques, structure–property relationships, process modelling, etc., specifically for AM.
