Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

3D printing, formally known as additive manufacturing, has advanced significantly in the field of processing materials. Recently, many materials, most deemed as non-printable before, have surfaced in the field of 3D printing as new 3D printable materials; for example, glass, concrete, carbon fibers, dissolvable metals, etc. Though not many have reached commercial maturity, the endless possibilities of 3D printing have been undoubtedly manifested. This causes us to consider, by looking at today’s range of materials and the range of 3D printable materials, what will 3D printing look like tomorrow? This exciting question motivates us to propose a Special Issue on the next generation of 3D printing materials.

The focus of this Special Issue is on new, 3D printable materials. Any topics involving 3D printing materials will be of interest to us. Please refer to the following list of suggested keywords for the scope of this Special Issue. We look forward to your contribution.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs).
