Additive manufacturing is center of attention now days in innovative research specially because of industrial revolutionization and commercialization. It has a number of advantages, including mass customization, design freedom, waste minimization, and rapid prototyping in breakthrough applications such as aerospace, biomedical, constructions, buildings, and even food, health, and fashion. Metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites are among the materials used, as are smart materials, biomaterials, and nanomaterials. 3D printing is gaining a lot of traction these days, and it has made huge strides in the realm of additive manufacturing. A variety of software is also being used to assist the phenomenon of 3D printing. The basic types of 3D printing, the materials utilized for 3D printing, and applications are discussed in this review study.
