Stereolithography (SLA) resins are popular in prototyping and mold making. These photopolymers are also used for Objet, Envisiontec and Formlabs systems.
In terms of raw materials that are put into the printing system to create the 3-D objects, there seem to be relatively few limitations on what can be used.
Currently, plastics are the most widely used materials in additive manufacturing, and the important ones are listed below: 3d printing in delhi ncr gurgaon india
taulman alloy 910 nylon
ABS - acrylonitile butadiene styrene or 'lego' plastic – a very common choice for 3D printing
3d printing pla - polylactic acid – Is available in soft and hard grades, is becoming very popular and may overtake ABS in the near future
3d printing with pva - polyvinyl alcohol – This is used as a dissolvable support material or for special applications.
printing on polycarbonate (PC) – Polycarbonate requires high-temperature nozzle design and is in the proof-of-concept stage.
SOFT PLA - polylactic acid – Is rubbery and flexible, available in limited colors and sources. As 3D printing spreads, may get easy to find.
you can 3D print with HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) on a FDM machine. Results can be good if you have the right HDPE
