The chapter will also discuss specialized polymers and blends that are required to be added to ceramics to make them suitable to be fabricated into 3D parts. Some additional discussion on polymers and composites that are used for biomedical applications different from traditional materials like polylactic acid-poly(lactic-co-­glycolic acid) (PLA-PLGA) or hydroxyapatite is also presented here. Some of the earliest work for AM of polymer composites started in the mid-1990s but is still continuing with new materials and processes, especially for higher strength thermoplastic polymers and composites.

The chapter concludes with current challenges and future trends in the AM field with emphasis on polymers and composites. 1 Introduction Additive manufacturing, or AM processes, initially known as solid freeform fabrication and rapid prototyping and currently described as direct digital manufacturing, or rapid manufacturing, art to part, additive layer manufacturing, or layer manufacturing, were originally developed in the late 1980s to early 1990s (Gibson, Rosen, and Stucker 2010). This chapter will discuss some of the historical perspectives on the development of AM technologies as related to polymer-based materials and how that progress has controlled the development of AM process for polymers and composites.
