No one-size-fits-all solution for material adhesion - The manufacturing industry wants to 3D print with materials it is already accustomed to. Thus, there is a race to adapt the current materials for 3D printing. From a practical perspective the variety in materials is needed because each presents its own beneficial properties, such as the required hardness, durability to wear and tear, robustness, flexibility, temperature durability and chemical resistance. The hard part is that each of the plastics will have different traits and properties as well as would act slightly differently on each 3D printer.
