How many types of 3D printing plastic materials?

There are numerous types of 3D printing plastic materials, such as:

1. Thermoplastics: These are the most commonly used materials in 3D printing and include ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), PLA (Polylactic Acid), PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-Modified), and Nylon.

2. Resins (Photopolymers): Resins are used in SLA (Stereolithography) and DLP (Digital Light Processing) 3D printers. They are photosensitive and harden when exposed to UV light.

3. Plastic Powders: Powders, such as nylon powder and polystyrene powder, are used in SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) or HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers.

4. Filaments: Filaments are used in FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printers. They are thermoplastics that are heated and extruded through a nozzle.
