3DHP Inc has announced that a number of third party suppliers are working on development of plastics and other materials that can be used in its 3D printers.

The company announced plans to launch the high-end commercial Jet Fusion 3D 3200 printer earlier this year.  Initially, the printer will use PA12 plastic but HP says that additional materials will soon be made available by the third parties, extending the potential of the printer to produce a much wider range of outputs.
