The paper gives the analysis of the state of the art of 3D technologies of polymer materials, which is based on publications presented both in open sources as well as in a wide range of scientific and technical journals, including the own experience of the authors in 3D printing using thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers. The history of additive technologies, state of the art and trends of the development of the market of three-dimensional printing are considered. The classification of the most widespread in the world technologies of additive manufacturing of products from polymer materials depending on the methods of processing plastics is offered, their short description is given, their features, advantages and disadvantages are presented. 27 Ref., 1 Table, 6 Figures.
Keywords: additive technologies, 3D printing, polymer materials
