3D printing is one of the rapid prototyping technologies and is considered as one of the core technologies of the third industrial revolution. However, the current development of 3D printing materials has limited the development of 3D printing technology. In the field of 3D printing technology, due to its low melting point and low cost, polymer materials are the fastest growing and the most widely used in 3D printing. However, due to its high melting point, metallic materials have been slow to develop in 3D printing technology. In this paper, 3D printing is firstly introduced by introducing a low-melting-point metal alloy material to explain the difficulties of 3D metal printing. Then, by introducing a method that is compatible with mixed 3D printing of metallic materials and nonmetallic materials, and through research, it is proved that new metallic materials and nonmetal materials have good compatibility. Finally, this hybrid 3D printing method provides a new direction for the future development of 3D printing technology.
