I am fairly new in reading up about Rapid Prototyping technologies and have a question related to the materials that are used for the production of 3-D models.
I am aware of the fact that various technologies exist to create 3-D models (e.g. SLA, SLS, FDM, polyjet, 3-D printing, etc.). However, I am interested to know in what type of rheological problems (if any) are being encountered by using the various technologies. In addition, I am interested in the type of rheological additives typically used.
