FFF 3D printing technology will increase the toy industry innovation by means of the production of personalised toys through the development of new and innovative 3D printing filaments. These new materials have functional characteristics as colour change, antistatic or antimicrobial properties that will permit the production of short series which can be used in public places (hospitals or kindergartens) or areas of limited access such as hospitals. This works presents the developments of different polymeric material formulations and the characterisation with the aim to obtain new 3D printing filaments for customisation of toys and other consumer products.
