From simple PLA to glass and metal, there are all sorts of interesting 3D printing materials being used these days. I find concrete to be one of the more interesting materials, strictly because I know that there still are people who think 3D printing is only good for making little plastic characters, and not actual buildings. Concrete 3D printing completely debunks that assumption: there are 3D printed houses made out of concrete, and the durable material has also been used to make bridges, benches, a firewall, and even… a canoe?
