types of materials are available for 3D printing

To answer your general question, you can make objects using a few types of plastic (ABS, PLA, nylon, etc.), metals (titanium, silver, steel, etc.), and other materials like ceramics and even rubber-like substances. Keep in mind that different materials require different manufacturing methods as well. 3d printing mumbai ,Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh,maharashtra,pune,telangana india

In response to your idea: If you plan to make a lot of this product without variation it may be more economical to use a more traditional manufacturing method.

If you don't plan to make too many items, or want to customize them, or just want to test it out with a prototype, there are many ways you can get this done.

FDM/FFF - Plastics (ABS, PLA, PVA)


SLA - Photopolymer resins

Laminate - Paper
Inkjet - Plasters, Photopolymer resins

SLS/SLM - Huge range of plastics and metals

I've seen inkjet printers print materials with a "rubber" consistency, so its definitely doable.

3D Printing is used for both prototyping and small run custom jobs (aerospace and high end auto are good examples of this). An example of "mass production" 3D Printing would be something like Invisalign teeth braces. It's not mass production in the traditional sense as each brace is custom fit for a single person, but they create thousands of these in a factory setting.

Woww I never think that 3D printing can be made in these materials.
