Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are disrupting our society by proposing a faster and customizable way of producing parts. Along with the technological advances, the environmental, economic, and societal aspects of AM must also be addressed to create a sustainable future. In this viewpoint, I will briefly introduce three key challenges towards this goal, that are the materials diversity, the mechanical strength and stiffness and the use of green affordable materials. After describing our recent efforts, I will discuss forthcoming difficulties and alternatives, and stress the need for aligned research across communities.
